Maine dental bond approved by slim margin
from The Maine Campus
Question 2, a bond issue proposing increased access to dental care in Maine by borrowing $5 million to fund a dental school and to create clinics, was in a close race. Votes in favor of the bond issue led votes opposed 51.4 percent to 48.6 percent. The difference in percentages was equitable to a margin of 15,254 votes. Passing this ballot measure means $3.5 million of the $5 million total funds being sought will be matched by an additional $3.5 million in funding. In sum, $8.5 million will be spent across Maine to create a community-based teaching dental clinic and to upgrade existing clinics in order to increase availability of dental care to Maine residents.
