Evergreen Mountain Four Season announces Pat LaMarche As Spokesperson

Evergreen Mountain Four Season Resort Casino referendum, announced that Pat LaMarche has been named the spokesperson for the campaign. Evergreen founder, Seth Carey, said, "I can’t think of a more articulate, compassionate and intelligent person to bring our message of hope and economic viability to the people of Maine. Pat’s experience as a past U.S. Vice Presidential and Maine gubernatorial candidate for the Green Party underscores our dedication to the environment and sustainability.” In accepting the position Ms. LaMarche said: “Mainer’s have taken a lot of chances over the years. We’ve had leaders in Augusta gamble with our futures for decades. It’s time we invested in a sure bet. The 2006 Brookings Institute report told us what those sure bets are. We know we have a brand that is universally known outside this state: our environment. And we know we’ve got a sure thing investing in tourism. In fact the Brookings Institute told us to lay money on those two safe bets and, we could begin to turn our economy around.

The Evergreen Mountain Four Season resort is not a risky proposition. The risk is whether or not our kids will be able to find jobs here in Maine in the future. The risk is whether the state will have another shortfall and have to balance its budget by raising taxes and cutting even more services for the poorest and weakest of our citizens. The risk today is whether we can afford to stay in Maine if we miss this opportunity for genuine economic growth.” This Oxford County facility has been specifically designed to become an economic engine for growth by making it a world-class four-season destination resort with over *100 million dollars in revenue and annual visits of up to 1.4 million visitors. Over 100,000 Maine citizens signed this initiative because it offers a true beacon of hope for the future. It’s time to take action and set a course of hope for the future.
