Twitter Exchange with Steve Woods Continues Via Proxy Abigail Adams

Yesterday's twitter exchange with Steve Woods over discrepancy over what was said at an elaborate award ceremony and what was revealed in a freedom of information request continues via proxy, Abigail Adams, who has a mission to clear Mr Wood's name and establish that Tide Smart Global did indeed receive stimulus funds- to help the project find private financing. Steve Woods is running for the Maine legislature and advocates relocating rural populations to urban centers because they are not providing their fair share of revenue to Maine State Inc.

     Preserving The American Political Philosophy: Maine Gov Rules- Request a Certified Copy- But Don't Use Them In Court!

When I first published "How Maine's Home Rule Amendment Was Superseded By Statutory Law". the Rules for Non-profit Corporations were found on line- Now that link no longer displays those rules and one must download the document which displays the rules. The doc is available for download on the Maine Secretary of State's webpage with a long list of other rules which come with this warning: WARNING: While we have taken care with the accuracy of the files accessible here, they are not "official" state rules in the sense that they can be used before a court. Anyone who needs a certified copy of a rule chapter should contact the APA Office.We also offer advice if you're having trouble trying to view these chapters. 29-250 OFFICE OF THE SECRETARY OF STATE
