Maine Governor Lepage escalated the river dispute between Penobscot Nation and state government by calling on our elected officials in Washington to "intervene" (interfere) in Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) efforts to protect Penobscot fishing rights and ensure a clean, healthy river for all. For those who feel compelled to help Penobscots and the beautiful River we all love, addresses for our Washington delegates are provided below. We encourage you to raise your voice. They heard from Lepage, now they should hear from the People. And if you'd like to send words of appreciation or a thank-you note along to the Environmental Protection Agency for protecting the health of the Penobscot River, that address is provided below as well. LePage presents a looming threat of industrialization and accompanying territorial theft at the hands of state government. --- Maria Girouard
