Opinion - Candidate Thibodeau’s statement on prison closure

The Governor’s decision to shut down the Downeast Correctional Facility (DECF) is economically devastating and short-sighted. 

In 2016, a promise was made to the people of Washington County by this administration when the legislature approved the Government Facilities Bond that mandated a correctional facility be open in Washington County. Today, I believe that promise, embodied in law, has been broken.
