On the Road with Mary Mayhew

The week before Thanksgiving I started off bright and early on Monday morning with Rep. Mike Perkins on a tour of dairy farms across Kennebec County. All in, we visited five different farms and talked with dozens of hardworking Mainers that help to put food on our tables every day.
On Tuesday, we spent a full day on the border of Hancock and Penobscot County, visiting Buckport in the Morning and then Orrington in the afternoon.

First, we sat down with Town Manager Sue Lessard and Community and Economic Development Director Rich Rotella.

Then we stopped to meet the crew at Front Street Boatyard.
Later that morning, we visited Bucksport Superintendent Jim Boothby and Principal Josh Tripp. The Bucksport leadership team is doing incredible things, especially in the wood and metal shop. This exposure to the trades at a young age is exactly the approach that we need to pursue statewide.
We finished our time in Bucksport with a visit to the former mill site and a quick visit with downtown business owners. The mill closing was tough on folks, but they have plans to find a tenant for the site and increased utilization of the port. Everywhere I went, we met resilient folks that are committed to their community-it was truly a great day in Bucksport.

In the afternoon, we headed back to Penobscot County to visit with our grassroots team in Orrington and to visit with some businesses.
I’m pleased to announce our new Orrington Town Chair, Pat Gero.
We finished the evening with stops at Husson University and Hermon GOP. Thanks to Mike and to Terry Hamm-Morris.
We continued our weekly volunteer night tradition with 18 Mayhew for Maine supporters attending a volunteer workshop in Falmouth. These volunteer nights are key to helping spread the word about our campaign. If you’d like some guidance in putting together a volunteer night in your town, please contact Adam at Adam@MayhewforMaine.com.
On Thursday, it was back on the road in Sagadahoc and Lincoln County with Jeff Pierce. We met a bunch of hardworking folks in Phippsburg, Woolwich, Five Islands, Georgetown, South Bristol, and Jeff’s hometown of Dresden.
Congratulations to my hometown team, the MCI Huskies, on winning the Class C State Championship in football.

A note from Team Mayhew:

Mary is the kind of person we need to lead our state. She’s thinking about the future of Maine and about how to better its people, and she has shown that she has the leadership to get things done.

Will you stand with her in this?

A donation of just a few dollars would make a difference in this race as we reach out to voters across the state. If you’re with Mary, help us show her you’re backing her.
