Counting Votes in “Community Matters More” Contest 

More than 65,000 votes were cast in a contest to help Bangor Savings Bank give away money to some deserving community groups. Organizers of the “Community Matters More” program are now counting those votes – which could top 80-thousand or better when they’re done. They plan to announce the winners later this month. Up until yesterday, people could vote on-line for their favorite non-profit organizations. 48 were nominated and they’ll all receive $1,000 for the honor. The top eight vote getters will receive $5,000.
