State Sen. Bill Diamond, Rep. Mark Bryant and Rep. Patrick Corey will be hosting a public forum in Windham on Saturday, Feb. 7, from 10 a.m.-noon at the Windham Town Hall’s Town Council Chambers.

“Public input is very important to us as we consider the Governor’s proposed budget,” Rep. Corey said. The proposed budget includes an increase and expansion of the sales tax and reductions in the income tax along with many other significant tax changes, most of which will directly impact every Maine citizen.

“We want to make sure we hear what local people think about the budget and any other issue that may be on the minds of our constituents,” stated Rep. Bryant.

The forum will be an opportunity for the public to express their opinions, thoughts and ideas regarding the important issues that will be decided during the next few months.

“We realize that people have busy schedules and coming to Augusta to testify on these major tax changes, and other issues as well, is very difficult, if not impossible. This is our attempt to bring Augusta to Windham – we want to hear directly from the people,” said Sen. Diamond.

For those not able to attend, Diamond can be reached at 892-8941, Bryant at 892-6591 and Corey at 749-1336.
