    “Hanson continues to work  for the Maliseets” plenty of $$ to go around there, just google Tribalco, multimillion dollar operation, average salery 75,000.

    Has anyone else noticed that there seems to be a weekly departure of Town Managers and School Superintendents in this state ? It seems that they are now going from town-to-town looking for the best offers. New blood .. that’s what we need .. not this old iron poor blood that has gotten us nowhere. Most of these deadbeats are collecting a pension and just want to add your tax dollars on top of that.

    WOW–we are REALLY, REALLY fortunate if Charlie Pray will take the position!  Politics on all levels has been so awful, this is such good news.

      Yup just we need another high paying stuff shirt that will accomplish nothing, just as he did in the Senate.

    Yeah, right, another stuff shirt against Roxanne Quimby. Enough to make taxpayers really sick. If the citizens of Millinocket don’t wipe the slate of the present councilors off the board, all they will see going down Main Street is tumbleweeds.

      I agree.  I drove through dowtown Millinocket during the Labor Day weekend, couldn’t believe how many business were boarded up.  The I went past the airport and around to the recreation place, I think it was Three Rivers, and the place was packed with outdoor enthusiasts for prime-rib dinner.  Outdoor enthusiasts patronizing an outdoor center.  And yet the town manager and council are doing everything possible not to have a national park; makes you wonder what part of 2+2 they didn’t get.

    So much for hiring someone without a hidden agenda.  Might as well have cloned Eugene….sad day for Millinocket.

    This could be fun. Millinocket has sued LePage and the State of Maine. Charlie Pray is certainly no new comer to Maine Politics and something tells me from reading his post on these message boards that he really isn’t a big fan of LePage’s. It should be an interesting few months in the soap opera that is called The LePage Administration.

       Silly  me, I thought the soap opera, in Millinocket, was named As the (Government) Checks are Cashed? It’s on the first of every month.

        You must be thinking of the soap opera that runs on the local access channel. I am talking about the horror show that runs state wide.

    Governor LePage could use a healthy dose of Charles Pray and so can Northern Maine politics.

    What, BDN. Nothing about all of the Pray corruption when he was last in government? Hold onto your wallets Milinocketters, and don’t let him near any aircraft.

      And don’t let him handle the hunting license money, either.

    A person can’t help but wonder if some of you have been advised by your psychiatrists to take their frustrations out on the BDN comment section (rather than punching a pillow or family member) as a means of therapy. It’s this kind of negativity the plagues the country today.  Pavlov’s dogs come out trained to go for the juggler.  Not everyone agrees on anything but the venom is sickening.  How about some open, civil discussion?

      I think open discussion is interesting and beneficial to all people.
