Maine Gubernatorial Candidate Visits – Part II

This just in from Ben Porter at Save Our Bridges: Another visit from a Maine Gubernatorial candidate, this coming Tuesday …

Subject: Gubernatorial Candidate Visits – Part II

Over the past month we have had visits to Kittery by two of the Gubernatorial candidates, Elliot Cutler (Independent) and Libby Mitchell (Democrat). We have scheduled another visit next week, and are in the process of scheduling two more.

In each of these meetings, our objective is to educate the candidate about the criticality of our bridges to the community, to the State of Maine, and to the State of New Hampshire. We need everyone’s participation in these meetings to fully communicate the criticality of this situation.

On Tuesday, September 7, at 9:30 AM, Republican Paul LePage will be at the Weathervane Lobster in the Rough on Badgers Island. At that meeting, Ben Porter will open with a brief discussion of the current situation with the bridges connecting Kittery and Portsmouth. Following that, members of the community will be able to add their comments concerning the need for the connections between our municipalities, and the impact loss of just one bridge will have on the entire state of Maine. Finally we will invite the candidate to tell us about his position concerning the needed investments.

We are currently in discussions with Independent Candidates Shawn Moody and Kevin Scott to identify times when they can be in Kittery to participate in similar sessions. As soon as we nail down the dates and times, we will be in touch with each of you.

In the mean time, please mark this important meeting on your calendars, and get ready for Hurricane Earl.

Best Wishes,
Ben Porter
