Congressman Mike Michaud, a former papermaker at Great Northern Paper in East Millinocket, issued the following statement in reaction to the news of the sale of the Katahdin region mill properties:
Since January, Michaud has remained in constant contact with state, local, and federal officials to do everything he can to make sure that papermaking in the region continued. In April, Michaud spoke on the House floor about the situation surrounding the paper mills in the Katahdin region and the need for the U.S. to support a national manufacturing strategy and a new trade policy that focuses on the needs of domestic workers and businesses. In June he encouraged the Maine Senate to pass LD 1567, which authorized the state to take action on the landfill in the town of East Millinocket.
