My thanks to the newspaper for running the series of articles exposing the conflict between the Department of Environmental Protection’s mission and the goals of the current administration.

I have friends who had worked for DEP for 40 years. These are people who understand and profoundly appreciate Maine’s unique natural setting, who were dedicated to their work and highly respected by their peers and the public.

They were forced to resign because of the psychological bullying of their LePage-appointed supervisors. One was harassed to the point that her mental and physical health were detrimentally affected.

Thank you for exposing these abuses of authority and conflict of interest.
