Steve Abbott (March 2010)

March 4, 2010 -- I met up with Steve Abbott at Ruthie's Hotel Terrace Restaurant in Millinocket, where I had the chance to ask him about what he thinks is important for the state, and particularly the northern part of the state. He talked to me about LURC, about jobs, about Dirigo, and about laptops.

The most surprising thing he said to me over coffee was this:

"Over the course of the last decade, Maine has added a net of 56 jobs…You can't sustain an economy like that. To me, more than any other statistic, that tells you in a nutshell what's wrong with Maine."
