Dems Show Mills’ Small Business Support | GOP points to fuel costs

Mainers will go to the polls on Nov. 8 to vote for the next governor.

MAINE, USA — In less than 50 days, Mainers will go to the polls to vote for the next governor.
On Thursday, Maine Democrats gathered at Orono Brewing Company to highlight what Governor Janet Mills has been doing to support small businesses. Meanwhile, some Republicans said she hasn’t done enough.
Multiple business owners discussed Mills’ impact on their business, including Maine Democratic Representative Joe Perry.
Perry said sales in his small market in Bangor are better than in the past 30 years.
“I fear if we go back to what we had for Gov. Mills what it would mean for myself and a lot of small businesses,” Perry said.
The Republican state of Sen. Stacey Guerin is a small business owner herself. She questions the positive image the Democrats paint of the economy.
“We have rising inflation. Interest rates are rising. I have voters contacting me every day about how they are going to pay [for] their oil because of rising fuel costs. That’s not a booming economy,” Guerin said.
