Quotes

"Local governments are probably trying to find a good mix of outside-oriented mascot characters and inside-oriented, community-organizing ordinances in order to bring prosperity in a way that's suitable for their areas" says Yamazaki
"Their region resembles Washington County," he says of the latter possibility. "What they see as similarities are that we both have small fishing and commercial marine communities that are losing population. Young people are leaving to find opportunities elsewhere. What they have is a skilled marine work force and strong tidal currents. They see an economic development model in Eastport that puts people to work. That's why they came to us."
But Kudo added, "The state is imposing danger on us without listening to us. This is a lawsuit to protect the city and its citizens."
