U.S. Reps. Mike Michaud and Chellie Pingree are praising a $2.5 million grant from the U.S. Department of Labor to Kennebec Valley Community College in Fairfield.
"Last night, I returned home to East Millinocket for the first time since the news broke earlier this week that Great Northern was filing bankruptcy. As I drove by the mill, my heart just broke. I worked at that mill for more than 29 years."
U.S. Rep. Mike Michaud is standing by displaced Old Town Fuel and Fiber workers this evening, after news broke that the Department of Labor had not found cause to issue Trade Adjustment Assistance to the 200 workers recently laid off.
