About the series:
The USM Muskie School of Public Service and Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, in collaboration with the Maine Public Broadcasting Network, will host a series of one-on-one conversations with candidates from Maine's 2014 gubernatorial race.
Each of the candidates will have a chance to outline his plans for Maine. Moderator Richard Barringer, professor emeritus in the Muskie School, will ask one or two questions and then open the floor for questions from the audience. All sessions will be taped for future broadcast on Maine Public Radio’s public affairs show, “Speaking in Maine.”
