Bangor Gubernatorial Forum Focuses on Maine’s Quality of Place

How will Maine’s next Governor preserve and incorporate the state’s unique quality of place with their plans to stimulate economic development?

Maine gubernatorial candidates will discuss these and other topics in a forum on September 21 at 5:00 p.m. in the Historic Bangor Opera House, home of Penobscot Theatre, on Bangor’s Main Street.
