I’ve stripped the tracking URLs in this message. The action link works — I haven’t tried the others. The only quarrel I have with this is the statement that “General Dynamics doesn’t need our money.” In fact, their only source of money is us 🙂 Dick ——– Original Message ——– Subject: No corporate welfare in Maine From: Global Network <globalnet@mindspring.com> Please forward to your local lists in Maine General Dynamics doesn’t need our money. Bath Iron Works (BIW), which is owned by the $31 billion aerospace and military conglomerate General Dynamics Corporation, is requesting a $250,000 a year tax break for the next 25 years from the City of Bath, Maine. Everyone in Maine should email the Bath City Council to reject this request.
