Protect South Portland Press Conference



On October 8, the Protect South Portland (PSP) group held a Press Conference at their headquarters in South Portland. 

There were a host of impressive statements; consider:

“The oil industry is spreading false and misleading information to scare and confuse voters, diverting attention from this crucial decision for our community." -Mayor Blake, lifelong resident of South Portland

"The Waterfront Protection Ordinance will prevent the development of a tar sands export facility on the South Portland Waterfront. And that is all; other businesses can and will continue to thrive. The oil industry’s report falsely assumed that the ordinance would close down all of the petroleum-related businesses in South Portland, which is a fictitious assumption.”
-Dave Owen, Professor of Law and lifelong resident of South Portland
