Media editorial positions

Support

The Bangor Daily News said,

Question 8 provides funds to restore or refurbish state parks and historic places--that's reason enough to support it--but for a state dependent on tourism and vacation travel for much of its revenue, this bond is critical. It is an important investment in the Maine economy. [4]
