As we approach Election Day, Bangor and Veazie voters are reminded of the remarkable efforts of two of our representatives in Augusta. Sen. Joe Perry and Rep. Mike Dunn deserve great credit for their being so instrumental in Bangor and Penobscot County finally getting the much-needed new courthouse. The new facility, replacing the 100-year-old antiquated structure in great disrepair, represents a $40 million investment in our community.
Thanks mainly to the efforts of Perry and Dunn, the citizens of our communities, county and state will have a court structure which will meet their needs for the next 100 years.
Winfred A. Stevens
