AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) -- Maine voters on Nov. 2 will have to decide on more than their choice for governor and casino gambling. Two borrowing proposals totaling nearly $15 million are on the ballot.
A coalition of dentists, patients, health care providers and business organizations is pushing for voter approval of Question 2, a $5 million bond issue to help build dental clinics throughout Maine. The bonds would pay for a community-based teaching dental clinic and upgrade community-based health and dental care clinics across the state.
Question 3 seeks $9.7 million in long-term borrowing for land conservation and preservation of working waterfronts and state parks. Some of the money would also fix up bathrooms, showers and make general repairs in state parks.
