BP's first trip winds to a close
Unfortunately for me my time in Maine has come to an end, but for Mainers the 2009 ballot measure campaigns are only beginning to heat up. Although, I covered only 3 of the 7 measures on the ballot this year, I do hope that the interviews and reports prove to be a useful resource. Thanks for following me and Ballotpedia as we made our first attempt to offer some extra insight into Maine politics. As I mentioned in the beginning, most trips - let alone first anythings - usually have a few road bumps on the way. So if you have any questions, comments or suggestions about our Ballotpedia Travel series please email me at BDLudlam@ballotpedia.org.
Make sure to keep up with Maine ballot news and review the individual articles for details about each measure.
