Stops include Main Street shops and Legion post with plans for jobs, aiding vets
MILLINOCKET — Cynthia Dill, the Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate, will be in Millinocket Tuesday to speak with veterans and hear from business owners concerned about their economic futures.
During the day, Dill will tour Main Street and listen to business owners speak about the state of the economy in the area.
DilI will make remarks supporting President Obama’s jobs bill that helps the middle class with five major proposals: keeping American jobs at home by removing rewards for companies that outsource, expanding refinance opportunities for responsible homeowners, investing in tax credits for hiring by small businesses, laying the groundwork for economic diversity and clean energy manufacturing, and creating a veterans jobs corps.
“No veteran should have to fight for a job at home after they fight for our nation overseas,” Dill said.
After her remarks, Dill will join local citizens in welcoming U.S. Marine Capts. Mark Silvers and Sean Gobin as they complete a 2,180-mile hike of the Appalachian Trail to raise funds for the Wounded Warrior Project.

On Wednesday evening, Dill will deliver an address in Lewiston celebrating the start of many of the major provisions of the Affordable Care Act.
