Maine: What happened to the Marine Resources commissioner?, an update
This past summer I wrote a piece for Down East, trying to get to the bottom of the fiery resignation of Maine's Department of Marine Resources commissioner, Norman Olsen. The article was based on the partial release of public records in response to an open records request, so I promised at the time to update readers once the governor's office finally completed the request.
