Maine Governor's nomination of Nestle Waters official to state BEP draws ire

In today's Portland Press Herald, I wrote about how Maine Governor Paul LePage's nomination of Mark Dubois, the public face of Nestle Waters (dba Poland Springs), to the state Board of Environmental Protection is drawing fire.

Dubois, whose firm has been on the scene for some amazing conflict of interest situations in the past, goes before a legislative confirmation hearing later today in Augusta.

That is all.

[Update, 1/25/18: The environment and natural resources committee endorsed Dubois 10-3 and the Senate confirmed him by a much closer, mostly party line, 18-15.]
