Hastings Column Proposes a Bipartisan Approach to Politics

An opinion column in a recent edition of the Bangor Daily News by Mike Hastings, director of the UMaine’s Office of Research and Sponsored Programs, described the Maine Congressional Delegation created by then-U.S. Sen. Ed Muskie in 1973 to provide a bipartisan forum in Washington for Maine’s~representatives to discuss on a monthly basis the needs of constituents back home. State delegations meeting periodically as units could be a step toward restoring a sense of trust and cooperation missing from politics today.
