Tribal Reps Make the Call 

The Maine House of Representatives added the names of the Passamaquoddy and Penobscot tribes’ representatives to the official roll call board on display in the chamber on Wednesday.

With the change, representatives Wayne Mitchell and Donald Soctomah will have their attendance at legislative sessions noted and entered into the legislative record.

House speaker Hannah Pingree says the tribal representatives work very hard for their constituents.

She says adding their names to the roll call board is a small but overdue step toward recognizing their contributions.
