Maine Government Students Featured in the BDN

Two of the students in POS 362-Maine Government have been featured in the Bangor Daily News commenting on issues relevant to Maine politics.

Liam Nee is featured extensively in this article on Gubernatorial candidate Mike Michaud’s plan to offer Maine students a tuition-free sophomore at any college or university in the University of Maine System. He states that the program is a promising way to help alleviate student debt, and emphasizes what a significant problem this is for students in the UMaine system.

In addition, Trey Stewart has had an op-ed published in the Bangor Daily News examining the intersection between diet and health policy. Trey argues that programs which promote and incentivize a healthy diet for low-income individuals could end up paying enormous later rewards. He highlights an incentive program for low-income individuals at local farmer’s markets initiated by the group Food AND Medicine as a promising first step.

Trey’s piece started out as a blogpost for his Maine Government course blog, Health Care and ME. 

Congrats, Liam and Trey!
