Opinion: Time for Shumlin to take correct position on pipeline

 It is way past the time when Gov. Shumlin should have caught up with a fast growing segment of the public, which realizes now that the so-called Addison Rutland Natural Gas Project has been a “pipe dream” all along. This pipeline never made sense.
Imagine a pipeline costing $154 million to serve 3,000 additional customers — more than $50,000 per customer. I live in Middlebury and am in one of the households that Vermont Gas wants to connect to their pipeline. No way do I want that money spent so that I can have natural gas, even if it is the ratepayers in Chittenden and Franklin counties who are required to pay for it.
Please wake up, Gov. Shumlin. Whom are you listening to? It is time to get with the program.
