Quotes

"Obviously this has been a very harsh winter which has really impacted roads in the state," said Fuentes. "There are a lot of roads that need attention. Maine doesn't spend enough money as a percentage of the state budget as it used to, and it's coming home to roost."
"We have a lot of work that needs to be done because what's on the street focused on economic development is very disjointed," she said. "We have these separate factions working in the same direction, but they are not coordinated. We do not have the hub."
...to our troops who defend our freedom and who sacrifice time with their family, friends and communities to serve,” said Governor Paul R LePage. "The State and the Department of Labor are proud to partner with these organizations to connect veterans with jobs, but all job seekers are welcome. Maine’s economy is heating up so this is a great time to get a job."
Summit Natural Gas of Maine president Mike Minkos said, "As we begin our 2014 construction program, we are committed to expanding natural gasgas service to the residential and commercial sectors."
