Planes, trains or snowmobiles: My speedbump to Maine begs questions
This dilemma, though, does beg some interesting questions. If the winter like atmosphere persists, how much of an impact would that make on the campaigns for and against Questions 3 and 5? Will we see more of an emphasis placed on the internet? More importantly, how will this case of “winter-come-early” affect voters who are unfamiliar with these ballot measures? For example, according to Skip Greenlaw, supporter of Question 3, many school districts that would be consolidated if the measure fails are located in some of the states’ poorest counties. Do some of those families in those counties have access to the internet so they could make an informed vote? Looks like we have to see what Mother Nature and her quirks have in store for the campaign leaders, the voters, and my car and me.
I think I’ll look for a bowl of clam chowder to keep me warm in the meantime, compliments of Beantown.
