Dover-Foxcroft lawmaker changes political party

DOVER-FOXCROFT - A state lawmaker from Dover Foxcroft has had enough of the partisan politics sweeping the nation.

Representative Norman Higgins has decided to leave the republican party and serve as an independent.

 

Higgins told the Piscatiquis Observer the legislature has become a partisan arena where outcomes are measured in wins and losses. He said the citizens expect lawmakers to work together for the common good regardless of party and he feels he can make a bigger difference as an independent.
