Rep. Campbell addresses Bucksport Town Council

Written by  Amanda Greenberg Tuesday, February 19, 2013 at 11:45 am

BUCKSPORT — State Rep. Dick Campbell (R-Orrington) addressed the Town Council at its Feb. 14 meeting to discuss what his plans are in the Legislature.

“Representing Bucksport and Orrington, I want to work with you (the councilors) to get bills into the Legislature that benefit both towns,” Campbell said.

Campbell, having been in and out of the Legislature since 1992, said he’s seen many changes during that time and understands things are difficult.

“In the past, Senator Richard Rosen took care of the town by fighting for what it needed,” Campbell said. “Now it’s my turn, which is why I wanted to come and explain what I’m working on.”

Many of Campbell’s bills are focused on creating jobs in the two towns, since both of them are energy producers.

“I feel that attention needs to be given to our towns because they play big roles in energy production,” Campbell said.

Mayor David Keene said he was pleased with what Campbell has been doing and would like to see it continue.

“While I don’t speak for the entire council, I would like to thank you for coming to talk to us, and I look forward to working with you in the future,” Keene said.

Councilor David Kee asked Campbell what he knew about the proposed revenue sharing cuts.

Campbell said he was unsure about how that would affect the two towns. He said he would get more information and share it with the council as soon as possible.

“I want to help Bucksport and Orrington as much as I can,” Campbell said.
