Today, State Representative Christie Carpino (R-Portland) and State Senator Norm Needleman (D-Essex) welcomed the State Bond Commission’s approval of a $500,736 allocation to replace the track at Portland Secondary School.
“I’m proud to have worked with Sen. Needleman, the governor’s team, and local leaders to make this project become a reality. An improved track will allow students in Portland as well as teams that visit to exercise and compete safely. It will also benefit community residents who wish to use it during non-school hours,” said Rep. Carpino.
“I’m grateful to Governor Lamont and the State Bond Commission for their consideration of this important project,” said Sen. Needleman. “Replacing the track at Portland Secondary School will allow students to continue training and racing on a safer, higher-quality surface, also reinforcing our commitment to the full development and support of all of our students.”
