Bangor in Contest for a Free Face Lift

BANGOR - Downtown Bangor may soon be getting a paint job, completely free.
It's all a part of a contest by Benjamin Moore.  There are currently 100 cities across the country competing, and the 20 cities with the most votes will all have their main street buildings re-painted at no cost.
 
"If we win this, it would be a significant investment for Downtown and for Bangor itself, because they're not only supplying the paint but their supplying the labor as well." Says Jason Bird, Downtown Coordinator for Bangor.
 
Bangor and Augusta are the only two cities in Maine a part of the contest.  To vote you can go to www.PaintWhatMatters.com
