AUGUSTA, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Business and community leaders joined with members of the Maine Mayors Coalition to urge Mainers to vote in favor of the five bond issues on the ballot this November.

Voters will be asked to decide on roughly $150 million in bonds for a variety of purposes, from transportation projects to educational facilities to improvements to buildings and training areas for the Maine Army National Guard.

"All of them are important to the economic vitality and prosperity of our state," stated Bill Stokes, Mayor of Augusta.  "We are hoping there is a good turnout next Tuesday and there will be strong support for all five bond questions."

Bangor's Mayor, Nelson Durgin, says these bond issues could have lasting impacts on the state's economy.

"Frankly, everyone of these bonds is related to jobs and opportunities in the state of Maine," said Durgin.
