Candidates for Governor
Selections from Maine Public Broadcasting Network Debate, November 1, 2006
This election debate was co-sponsored by the Margaret Chase Smith Policy Center and hosted by Fred Bever. Responses are complete but each selection has been condensed by deleting intervening transitions. Some questions were posed by panelists, some by the candidates. These are only four of the issues raised in the debate. Others included gun control, budget policy, negative campaigning, governor’s pardon power, cultural diversity and tolerance, higher education funding, attracting jobs to Maine, Taxpayer Bill of Rights, over crowding in jails and prisons, road conditions, and welfare spending.
The candidate participants were John Baldacci, Patricia LaMarche, Barbara Merrill, Phillip Morris NaPier, and Chandler Woodcock. A. J. Higgins asked the question regarding School Administration Consolidation.
