Brewer interviewed by WMTW about school board elections in Maine primary races

Mark Brewer, professor of political science at the University of Maine, spoke to WMTW (Channel 8 in Portland) about the tightly packed school board races in Maine’s primary elections this Tuesday. In Portland, 12 candidates will compete for three open seats. Two are for at-large school board positions and one is for an opening in district five. “School board elections in Maine generally have been pretty low interest and low intensity races. That being said, that’s started to change,” Brewer said.
