Voters Will Decide the Fate of New Maine Maritime Academy Building 

Three bond questions on this year’s ballot center around higher education in Maine.

Question four focuses on improvements to the Maine Maritime Academy.

If approved, the $4.5 million bond would help build a new science facility on campus.

So far, the school has raised two thirds of the funds for the $15 million building.

President of Maine Maritime Academy, Bill Brennan, said, “The private sector by and large is going to fund it, but it will be a public building and we feel that it’s an investment on the part of the people in the state of Maine in a public institution.”

The president of the academy said they haven’t built a new classroom building for 30 years.
