Stockton Springs is the latest community to move ahead with plans to withdraw from the local school district.
90 percent of residents voted yesterday to start the process.
The town manager tells us that local control of students education is the biggest reason for the withdrawal.
He says the towns two school board members dont have a big say in educational members because they're outnumbered on the 17 member board.
Some other towns in RSU 20 are drafting their own withdrawal plans.
Yesterdays vote allows Stockton Springs to work with an attorney to draft a withdrawal proposal,
Additional votes will be needed before that plan is presented to the Maine Department OF Education.
Craig Colson became news director and anchor at WVII ABC 7 and WFVX Fox Bangor in December of 2012. He began his career in broadcasting in 1985 while working as a news photographer at another Bangor television station. Craig worked his way up through the ranks and became the main anchor for the nightly newscasts before leaving in 2009. At that point, he became news director for four local radio stations and delivered the morning news before taking on his current position.
Craig grew up in a "news family" and followed in the footsteps of his father who was also a news director and anchor. His brother is also a news photographer at a Boston television station.
Craig's career has brought him all over-reporting from everywhere from Washington D.C. to Red Square in Moscow, Russia. When he isn't reporting the news, Craig can be found taking on new adventures with his two daughters or exploring the coast of Maine in his kayak. His other passion is making furniture in his shop or just about anything involving the outdoors.
