Letter: Thanks, PSNH line workers
In my attacks on the Northern Pass and PSNH/Northeast Utilities management in general, I have failed to acknowledge there is another area of PSNH that does not deserve the same treatment: its employees, particularly its line workers. They deserve an entirely different letter of their own.
I want all the line workers who go out in the most severe weather, to work in terrible conditions with electrical power lines (a danger in its own right), to know I am very grateful to them. The workers are doing all PSNH customers an incredible service, and I have nothing but the highest regard for them. I also want them to understand when they pass by a home with “Stop the Northern Pass” signs, that does not reflect on them in any way! As a PSNH customer, I say “thank you.”
PSNH management should think of the safety of its own employees as one of the many reasons to bury the lines of the proposed Northern Pass project.
