23 Pleasant Street, Brunswick, ME
There are way too many holes in the bucket! Come hear Representative Diane Russell (D-Portland) speak about how a State Bank can help keep our money in Maine - money that can fund local business and reduce our taxes.
The people of North Dakota have such a bank and it has increased investment in the state and earned money from the interest income. Is this a good idea for Maine? We think so.
Ms. Russell will discuss:
• how a state bank works
• the bill she has introduced in the state legislature
• the nature of opposition of the large national banks, and what we can do to overcome that opposition
