Northeastern Maine could act as a major catalyst for economic revival
By N. Laurence Wiley, Jr.
Many believe that the concept of two Maines (or five Maines if you will), constitutes a huge impediment to growth and development in Northeastern Maine. They say that anything north of Exit 10 on the Maine Turnpike is unworthy of their attention — it is a highway to nowhere. They say there is nothing up there deserving of their efforts or investments. While I admit that Northeastern Maine lacks comprehensive leadership, I do believe that the region is a very attractive location for living, working and investing. Contrary to the pundits and "experts," Northeastern Maine could act as a major catalyst in our state for an economic revival.
