Please consider including one or more of the points below in your letter:

The SSA has become a destructive monopoly.

The SSA is destroying its mainland port towns.

Mainland port towns must have a voice.

Falmouth has no voice on the SSA Board (10% of the vote is not a voice in comparison with the 70% vote the two islands have).

Falmouth residents are disenfranchised from decision-making concerning the SSA’s impact on Falmouth.

The SSA has become a destructive organization for its mainland port towns.

The SSA’s freight monopoly has forced a zero-sum game on Falmouth.

Mainland port towns must have more of a home rule voice to remain healthy.

Again, the bill is here: https://malegislature.gov/Bills/192/S2361

The hearing is on July 28, 2-4PM. Signup to speak is here:

As speaking opportunities may be minimal, written testimony on the bill is likely the most significant contribution we can each make.

Please submit your letter by July 28.
