WATERVILLE  — All five candidates for Maine governor are expected to turn out for a forum where issues important to Maine senior citizens will be discussed.

The Maine Association of Area Agencies on Aging sponsors the forum Tuesday in Waterville. Local cable TV will air the exchange.

As Maine’s large baby boomer population grows older, the demand for services for elderly people will grow. Maine is the oldest state in the country with the highest median age.

Candidates are expected to answer questions on issues such home and community based care, health care reform and elder abuse.
