Baldacci Defends His County Jail Takeover Plan
The Kennebec Journal posted a news article on September 8, 2007 entitled "Baldacci defends jail plan". The governor has been receiving criticism of his plan to eliminated county jails in four counties and to consolidate the remaining county jails under the state corrections program. There have been many critics of this plan. This is of great interest to Somerset County commissioners who are in the process of building a multi-million dollar facility.
