To the editor:

I read Julie’s article about the Fort Kent municipal budget and I thought it was well done and informative. It could be just me, but I thought that the message that this is the “Governor’s budget proposal” is not clear to readers.That proposal isn’t going to happen, and quite frankly I didn’t support the last budget largely because of the 36 million dollar cut to revenue sharing. I attached the Democratic response to the Governor that I did last week, because I thought it might be helpful (http://www.fiddleheadfocus.com/content/0014311-our-elected-leaders-speak-troy-jackson-democratic-radio-address-week-12813). Take care.

Troy Jackson
