YORK — State Sen. Dawn Hill, D-York, will hold a community forum July 10 to update residents in her district about the work resulting from the recently ended session of the Maine Legislature.
The forum will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. in the York Public Library, 15 Long Sands Road.
“It is always important to keep an open connection between my work at the State House in Augusta and what it means for the people, businesses, and interests that I am elected to represent,” Hill said.
She added that because of her position as the only Democrat on the Senate Appropriations Committee, which is responsible for the state’s finances, her time was primarily spent addressing the state’s budget.
During the last session, the Appropriations Committee crafted a bipartisan biennial state budget; two supplemental state budgets; a Department of Health and Human Services budget; and a contentious supplemental to the DHHS budget. Additionally, Hill served on a special task force that found $25 million in government efficiency and savings.
Hill said she would like to hear more from the communities she represents about what the state could do better to improve the quality of life for Maine people and businesses.
Hill is also offering a legislative update by e-mail for anyone interested in signing up. To subscribe, visit www.mainesenate.org.
