Sens. Susan Collins and Angus King and Reps. Chellie Pingree and Jared Golden met with Gov. Janet Mills at the U.S. Capitol Monday, Feb. 25. During the meeting, the delegation and the governor discussed opportunities for greater collaboration between the federal delegation and state government, and additional ways to produce results that improve life for the people of Maine.

“We are all defined, first and foremost, by our commitment to the people of Maine,” said the Maine congressional delegation. “That was the focus of today’s conversation with Gov. Mills: our shared dedication to addressing the issues facing the state we all cherish, and ways we can come together [to] help advance a strong, prosperous, and forward-looking Maine. Today’s meeting is the beginning of a successful partnership, and we look forward to working together to ensure that every Mainer has the opportunity to succeed in the state we are all proud to call home.”

“I appreciated meeting with Sens. Collins and King and Reps. Golden and Pingree to discuss how we can work together to create a bright future for our state,“ said Mills. “I have no doubt that today’s productive discussion, shaped by our shared love of home, will be the first of many, and I look forward to partnering with the delegation to move Maine forward in the years ahead.”

Mills is visiting Washington, D.C., to take part in the annual meeting of the National Governors Association.
