Maine Forestry Products Council Breakfast

Maine Forestry Products Council Breakfast Oct 23rd in Fort Kent

Representative Mike Nadeau ( District 151), addresses the group at the Maine Forestry Products Council Breakfast in Fort Kent on Oct 23rd

Today I was invited to attend a breakfast hosted by the Maine Forestry Products Council for Legislatures and candidates for the Maine House and Senate.  It was a very informative meeting and many issues were discussed. Several business owners voiced their frustration about needless regulations that tie their hands and hamper their ability to run their businesses the way they see fiy. When I return to the State House, I will take the concerns they voiced today and try and help them remove these obstacles and minimize the hoops they needlessly have to jump through.

A Great Night in Ashland!

Meet the Candidates Night in Ashland, Oct 20th

Representative Mike Nadeau, District 151 sits and talks issues with Ashland voters at the Ashland District School’s “Meet the Candidates Night” on Oct 20th

What a great time we had in Ashland tonight.  Maine Senate Candidate Peter Edgecomb and I hosted a “Meet the Candidates” night at the Ashland District School and spoke with Local citizens from Ashland, Portage, and the surrounding areas of Masardis, Nashville Plantation and Oxbow. We discussed many issues including welfare reform, Healthcare, and the big one – especially for folks in Ashland and Portage, the Bear Baiting referendum. This is a critical issue for these towns, as it will have a significant impact on them after the outcome of the November 4th election. The bear baiting referendum is being closely watched, because more than a few local townspeople rely on Bear Baiting for a major part of  their livelihood. I sense a lot of support in that area, and I will continue working to represent your concrens and bring your voice to Augusta again during the next session. I appreciate your hospitality and thank you for welcoming Peter Edgecomb and myself to tonight’s meeting.  I am asking for your support and your vote on Election day, and promise to do whatever is necessary, even if it means stepping on people’s toes to do the right thing for Northern Maine!

Fort Kent Elementary Students Excited About The Election!

School Election Fair Oct 20

What a great bunch of kids! Had a great time at Fort Kent Elementary School during their election fair on Oct. 20

This morning we had a great time with the elementary school students in Fort Kent, as they put on an election fair. Each candidate had a booth created and decorated by the students, and we talked with many of them. They show a real interest in the upcoming Nov 4th election, and they even had voting booths in the hall, and ballots with the candidates and the key issues that are up for referendum.

Surveys, Debates, and Questionnaires….

More surveys, debates and lots of questionnaires…  Let me say it clearly – I think all these things have an agenda that serves select groups and selected information is required. You never get adequate time or room to really inform folks or fully explain. Some reserve the right to edit your answers. I am sorry to say that I actually did fill in a few surveys and questionnaires. One was not published and one was edited. I am done with those! I am much more concerned with actually helping people with issues and needs than to waste time

If any of those things had the ability to advance the state and make changes to how things are done, I would be there. When the choice comes down to filling out surveys or working for the people on the issues that concern them, the choice is clear – the people’s issues come first!

Your Tax Dollars at Work, Part 4

Another in a series of posts showing how Augusta spent your tax dollars in 2013…

MAINE TURNPIKE AUTHORITY BOARD OF DIRECTORS

20 meetings, attended by 5.3 committee members, for 2.4 hours each time.  Maybe someone can explain to us where the money went, and why each meeting costs multiple thousands of tax dollars. I didn’t bother to add it up, but as you can see… your tax dollars at work.
