In March, 13 town meetings/town votes across the state supported offshore wind warrant articles. We estimate that over 6000 voters voted for the warrant articles at town meetings alone – by 70% or more margins – including the Seacoast towns of Hampton, Exeter, Lee, Stratham, and Newfields – home of the governor! Rye and New Castle select boards also voted in favor of similar resolutions. Add this to last year’s votes by Durham, Dover, and Portsmouth councils, and the grand total of NH communities supporting offshore wind action and writing the governor now comes to 19 and counting. Along with our allies at 350NH, SAPL will be working in coming months to get the cities of Somersworth, Concord, Keene and Nashua on board as well.
RALLY FOR RENEWABLES – CALL ON THE GOVERNOR TO ACT
