ASSISTANT DEMOCRATIC LEADER RELEASES STATEMENT ON OLSON RESIGNATION

AUGUSTA-State Senator Justin Alfond (D-Portland) released the following statement upon learning of Marine Resources Commissioner Norman Olson’s resignation:

“I applaud Commissioner Olson’s courage and integrity. His open letter confirms my worst fears for the state. Commissioner Olson has shined a light on the LePage administration- illuminating the cronyism, bullying, and fear tactics.

I worry that this is not an isolated case, as the Governor has consistently put special interests and favoritism ahead of Maine people. We now know that his tactics of bullying and threats of retribution are not only used with legislators, but also with his own cabinet. Everyone in the state of Maine should be asking the same question — is Governor LePage fit to lead our state?
