Governors meeting puts Maine on the national political stage

PORTLAND, Maine — It’s not often that Maine is a center of national political intrigue.

For three days this week, the National Governors Association brought leaders from across the country, whether it be the governors themselves, businesspeople, non-profit leaders and members of the national media.

“It helps put Maine on the map,” said Gov. Janet Mills, who said the conference brought between 600 and 1,000 people to Portland, many for the first time. “It’s a great time of year to focus on what Maine has to offer.”
