Candidates for Maine governor reach out to fishermen | Portland Press Herald

Fishing, economic issues

highlighted as 12 hopefuls

speak at the industry forum

ROCKPORT – A dozen candidates for governor stressed the importance of Maine’s fishing heritage at a forum on Friday, but differed on how best to help one of the state’s oldest and most important industries.

The three-day Maine Fishermen’s Forum at the Samoset Resort is designed to draw attention to the issues facing the state’s commercial fishermen.

This year, the group invited some of the candidates for governor to a forum. Four Democrats, six Republicans, a Green Independent and an independent candidate got a chance to address about 100 people and to answer questions.

Candidates were asked what they would have done to prevent next month’s closing of the sardine cannery in Prospect Harbor, how strongly they would advocate for Maine fishermen and what can be done to attract seafood processing plants to Maine.
