Bill Beardsley Update
After predicting the announcement that Bill Beardsley would be Governor-elect Paul LePage’s Conservation Commissioner, Dan Demeritt, LePage’s Communications Director, told me that LePage choose to go with “safety and security” with his first announcements of cabinet positions. I note that my prediction that John Morris would be Public Safety Commissioner was correct.
Yesterday, Bill Beardsley delivered a brilliant speech at the landowner relations conference. The room was packed with landowners and outdoor recreationists. Nearly all believe Bill to be Governor-elect Paul LePage’s choice for Conservation Commissioner.
