MaryAnne Kinney of Knox for Senate Dist. 11, Todd Boisvert of Searsport for Waldo County sheriff, Liz Caruso of Caratunk for U.S. congressional Dist. 2, and former Rep.

The candidates informed attendees about upcoming election issues and engaged with the audience. There were many questions and much laughter. Don’t forget to vote in the Primary June 14!
