With Maine’s Governor, Paul LePage, serving his final year in office, candidates for the State’s highest office came to the Retail Lumber Dealers Association of Maine’s (RLDAM) January meeting. The January 24 event gave candidates an opportunity to meet with industry leaders from across the State to learn about the lumber and building material (LBM) industry’s needs and how local, independent businesses can help the State prosper.

In all, seven candidates for Governor attended the meet and greet to hear from RLDAM members. There are currently 24 candidates in the race, which will be contested in November 2018.

Gubernatorial Candidates in attendance included:

  • Small Business Owner Alan Caron
  • Sen. Mark Dion
  • Rep. Ken Fredette
  • Treasurer Terry Hayes
  • Attorney General Janet Mills
  • Businessman Shawn Moody
  • Senate President Mike Thibodeau

RLDAM has over 104 member businesses across Maine.
