LEWISTON, ME – U.S. Senator Angus King (I-Maine) today visited the Franco Center to meet with Maine seniors in the Lewiston-Auburn Community. King’s stop in Lewiston is a part of his greater outreach around the state to connect with the people of Maine in the final days before the election. The Franco Center is a non-profit performing arts center that celebrates the rich heritage and community in Lewiston-Auburn.

“The Franco Center represents the best of Maine — using art and community to bring people together to support their neighbors,” said Senator King. “In Maine, we are proud to embrace the many cultures that make up our community, and the people of Lewiston-Auburn have come to represent America’s highest ideals of inclusivity and unity. We are so much more alike than we are different, and by coming together we can continue to achieve positive growth for our communities.”

During his first term in the Senate, Senator King has participated in more than 1,200 meetings across the state of Maine to hear directly from Maine people on the challenges they face, including issues related to healthcare access, the opioid epidemic, environmental concerns, and more.

Senator King’s outreach at the Franco Center is part of his Get Out the Vote effort to ensure that Maine people are excited to exercise their right to vote on Election Day.
