Baldacci Begins Radio Addresses 

(WABI) – Governor John Baldacci began his weekly radio addresses Saturday on more than two dozen stations across the state.

The address is also being carried online on the governor’s website.

In his inaugural radio address, the governor said the state’s public school system needs big changes. He says his school regionalization plan is crucial to providing tax relief for Maine residents.

Baldacci says his weekly radio address is the first of its sort by a Maine governor.

Governors of California, Texas, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Hawaii also provide scheduled radio addresses.
