Windham legislative delegation wants to hear from citizens

Senator Bill Diamond, Representative Mark Bryant and Representative Patrick Corey will be hosting a public forum in Windham on Saturday, February 7th from 10 a.m. to noon at the Windham Community Center – Town Council Chambers.
“Public input is very important to us as we consider the Governor’s proposed budget,” Rep. Corey said.  The proposed budget includes an increase and expansion of the sales tax and reductions in the income tax along with many other significant tax changes most of which will directly impact every Maine citizen. 
“We want to make sure we hear what local people think about the budget and any other issue that may be on the minds of our constituents,” stated Rep. Bryant.       

This forum will be an opportunity for the public to express their opinions, thoughts and ideas regarding the important issues that will be decided over the next few months.

 “We realize that people have busy schedules and coming to Augusta to testify on these major tax changes, and other issues as well, is very difficult if not impossible.  This is our attempt to bring Augusta to Windham – we want to hear directly from the people,” said Sen. Diamond.
