Lewiston delegation to host Town Hall on State Budget Alternative: the Opportunity Agenda

Posted: April 10, 2017 | Senator Libby

Members of Lewiston’s delegation to the Legislature will hold a Town Hall Forum to discuss their proposed biennial budget, called the Opportunity Agenda, from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM Tuesday, April 25, in the Callahan Hall at Lewiston Public Library.

Sen. Nate Libby, Assistant Senate Democratic Leader, will convene the town hall-style public forum. He will be joined by Rep. Jared Golden, Assistant House Democratic Leader, and Reps. Heidi Brooks, James Handy and Roger Fuller, who will discuss the Opportunity Agenda and contrast this budget proposal with that of Governor LePage.

The Opportunity Agenda calls for the largest property tax cut in Maine history; invests in jobs and the economy; fully funds public schools; makes college degrees more affordable and attainable; supports families, seniors, children and veterans; and provides meaningful student debt relief. And it does it all without unnecessary cuts and without raising new taxes.

All are welcome to attend, ask questions and get answers. More information on the Opportunity Agenda may be found here.
