LWV-Downeast: League Meeting

 Registration is closed for this event
Local News and Democracy

The League of Women Voters -Downeast is hosting a panel discussion on the importance of local news outlets to a functioning democracy.  Panelists will include Kate Cough of The Maine Monitor, Carrie Jones of The Bar Harbor Story, Faith DeAmbrose of The Mount Desert Islander and Dan MacLeod of the Bangor Daily News.

With three state and federal elections coming up in Maine this year, an informed electorate is more important than ever.  “As local newspapers across the country close up shop, it is becoming increasingly difficult for people to feel a sense of community and to get vital, accurate information,” says Ann Luther of League of Women Voters – Downeast.

There will be an opportunity for questions from the live audience, and there will be an opportunity for the Zoom audience to submit their own questions to be presented by the moderator.
