Governor’s Address: Let’s Protect Maine’s Bounty for Our Children and Grandchildren

Maine’s natural resources are a cornerstone of our heritage and our economy. Protecting these precious resources is not some partisan rallying cry, it’s a responsibility that all of us share.

The movement towards a clean environment was led in Maine by Republicans like Harry Richardson, Sherry Huber, and Joe Sewall; on the national stage, it was led by Republican Senator Bill Cohen and Maine Democrats like Ted Kofman, Linda McKee, Ed Muskie and George Mitchell.

Maine people have always led the way in the pursuit of clean air, clean water, and uncontaminated soils.

Governor’s Address: Maine’s Hire-A-Vet Campaign Exceeds Goals

Earlier this week, I was proud to join a group of business people and veterans to recognize the growing number of employers who participated in Maine’s Hire-A-Vet Campaign last year.
