Political Scientist Comments on Bonds

Amy Fried, a political science professor at UMaine, was interviewed for a Central Maine Morning Sentinel report about poll results that suggest Maine voters will support the bond proposals on the ballot. Fried said bonds tend to be popular because people want better roads, to promote economic development, and provide jobs. One of those bonds would provide funding to UMaine for a new animal and plant diagnostic laboratory. Polling shows that respondents support the bond issue, according to the Sentinel story.
