I would like to say something about the misleading and false information being put out by those opposed to selling Powder Ridge to Brownstone.
I have found that much of this is coming from a person by the name of Marianne Corona.
It seems that the previous deal to sell Powder Ridge to Alpine met with her approval. She is now opposed to the current deal, which while very similar to the Alpine deal is actually much better for the Town, as the Brownstone Park business in Portland is guaranteeing the contract.
So why is Ms. Corona against the deal? Is it because she has a secret business relationship with Alpine? Is it because she has been having secret meetings over the past few months with Alpine and with housing developers from Canada that want to put 150 condominiums at Powder Ridge? Does she stand to profit from such a deal? Why is she going around Town spreading lies about the deal to sell Powder Ridge? Is it so she can get our First Selectman out of office so to clear her way to sell the town out?
These are the questions you need to ask about the opposition to Powder Ridge. The opposition does not represent your interests or that of the town.
Get out and vote. Save Powder Ridge, save Middlefield.
