Bob and Linda Godfrey, founding members of Save Passamaquoddy Bay Three Nation Alliance, who successfully fought against three proposed LNG projects in the bay over a 12-year period are planning to write a book about that battle potentially titled “Being David: a small grass roots group fought Goliath developers and won.” Submitted photo.

The 12-year-fight to prevent liquefied natural gas (LNG) development in Passamaquoddy Bay finally came to an end in August and plans are in the works for a book chronicling that battle.

Bob and Linda Godfrey of Eastport are two of the founding members of Save Passamaquoddy Bay (SPB) Three Nation Alliance who led the fight against any proposed LNG projects in the bay which, at one time, numbered three – Quoddy Bay LNG, Downeast LNG and Calais LNG.

The grassroots organization was made up of people surrounding Passamaquoddy Bay – U.S. citizens, members of the Passamaquoddy Tribe and Canadians.

Now the couple plans to work through SPB’s extensive archives and write a book about those experiences potentially titled “Being David: – s small grassroots group fought Goliath developers and won.” Read the full story here.
