Petition to save Downeast Correctional Facility

MACHIAS - Folks in Downeast Maine aren't giving up on the local correctional facility.

Governor LePage sparked outrage Friday when he ordered it closed and sent police and buses before dawn to remove all the inmates and staff.

 

This came as lawmakers were considering a bill to fund the facility in order to keep it open.

 

The Maine House Democrats have now formed an online petition asking the governor to reopen the prison.

 

It has been signed by dozens of people.

 

You can find the petition HERE.
