BUCKFIELD (NEWS CENTER Maine) -- All over Maine on Monday, most people spent Labor Day as a break, one last, long weekend of summer before going back to life as usual. But this is an election year…and for politicians, Labor Day is a milestone in the political calendar.
For the candidates for Governor, it means they have to be ready for the most intense part of their campaign.
In Buckfield, Labor Day featured the annual community festival, a chance for savoring the joys of being good neighbors. For State Treasurer Terry Hayes, who has lived in the town for thirty years, the day was a break, of sorts.
“This is an opportunity to campaign in my hometown,” she said
Hayes is running as an independent for Governor. Labor Day means she will be busier than ever taking her message around Maine.
