Crandall speaks with WVII about University of Maine Day at Statehouse

Mindy Crandall, an assistant professor of forest landscape management and economics at the University of Maine, spoke with WVII (Channel 7) about University of Maine Day at the Maine Statehouse in Augusta Jan. 29. Students, faculty and staff from UMaine, including some from the institution’s College of Natural Sciences, Forestry, and Agriculture and Cooperative Extension, spent the day talking with lawmakers, according to the report. “It’s our job to serve the needs of this state and the best way that we figure out what the state needs [is] by going and meeting with people,” Crandall said. “These are the people who know what their constituents’ issues are, so it’s a great way for us to interface with them, to get information about what the state is thinking its needs are and how we can help.”
