From local jobs to clean energy, this project is right for America and right for the Cape. In years to come, the people of Massachusetts will be proud of this contribution to the clean energy revolution.

Town Council for sale? Thursday, October 04, 2012
Cape Cod Times' columnist Sean Gonsalves asks if the Barnstable Town Council is 'for sale' to the opposition group to Cape Wind? He follows the money trail that shows project opponents are paying the legal bill for the Town. He writes:
"But, it's downright insulting for a town government, which is supposed to represent the entire town, to set up a special fund to accept money from a one-sided opposition group on the most politically divisive issue the Cape has seen in the past decade. It sets a bad precedent, to say nothing of the slap in the face to the sizable number of town residents who support Cape Wind."
