"The City of Lewiston has a long and very positive working relationship with Maine's largest utility, Central Maine Power. We consider CMP to be an excellent business partner and service provider. Our city is fortunate to have worked very closely with CMP during its recent reliability expansion project - the Maine Power Reliability Program (MPRP) - and, throughout the development process, we were extremely pleased to see CMP respectfully negotiate with Lewiston residents and design solutions to mitigate any issues or concerns."
- Former Mayor Robert McDonald, City of Lewiston
