Rockland’s Island Institute hosts the first gubernatorial forum of the season on Friday.

The non-profit organization will ask candidates questions that relate to island communities, on such issues as alternative energy, fisheries, affordable housing and education. What questions would residents of Piscataquis and Somerset counties ask the

candidates? What about Washington County residents? Those living in Greater Bangor, the Midcoast and Aroostook County?
