“Maine Matters: Our Energy Future” was written and produced by George Simonson and edited by Gina Snyder and Simonson, with camera work by Howie Marshall and technical assistance from Donna Frisoli and Dave Chipman, of Harpswell Community Television. The show host was Maine native Sophie Gaulkin, a former Harpswell resident and now an attorney in Washington, D.C.
