Representative Mick Devin Speaking at Bremen Conservation Commission Event
The Bremen Conservation Commission will host a presentation by Representative Mick Devin about environmental issues specific to Maine. The presentation, which is free and open to the public, will be on Monday, May 8, at 6:30 PM at the Bremen Town Center meeting room. The Town Center is at 208 Waldoboro Road (Route 32) behind Bremen Library.
The BCC first became interested in inviting Representative Devin to speak when he sponsored a bill to ban single-use plastic bags in Maine. A number of municipalities have enacted or are in the process of enacting such legislation. Representative Devin will also address the banning of Styrofoam containers. There will be time for questions on these and other issues presented.
Representative Devin will speak about what he considers the three greatest threats to the Gulf of Maine and our coastal waters: the growing effects of ocean acidification on Maine’s fishing and aquaculture industries; rising sea temperatures; and the proliferation of marine debris, primarily plastics.
In the Maine House of Representatives, Mick Devin serves on the Marine Resources Committee and is Maine’s liaison to the National Caucus of Environmental Legislators. As a state representative, he sponsored a bill, which passed, that created a commission to study the effects of coastal and ocean acidification on commercially harvested and grown species. He has also sponsored bills to address changing sea levels, increased storm surge, commercial fishing and aquaculture management, and marine debris.
