Joshua L. Chamberlain Award Nominations

November 9, 2016

In 1976, the Brunswick-Topsham-Bath Military Community Council decided that it was appropriate to 
recognize those individuals in our area who, through their outstanding dedication and service toward the best possible military-community relationship within this area, deserved to be singled out, congratulated, and remembered. That decision was made in recognition that it has been the collective effort of many 
individuals, over many years that have fostered the very excellent relationship which exists today between the military and civilian communities in this region. Soldier, statesman, educator and businessman Joshua L. Chamberlain was selected as the namesake for an annual award to be given by the Council.


No on Question 4: Official SMMC Stance

Vote No on 4:
If Question 4 passes it would hurt all businesses,
restaurants in particular, and our fixed-income seniors

After surveying the membership, the Southern Midcoast Maine Chamber is urging Maine citizens
to vote NO on Question 4: An Act to Raise the Minimum Wage.

To be crystal clear, the Southern Midcoast Maine Chamber is not opposed to a minimum wage increase.  However, Question 4 does much more than just add a simple raise to the minimum wage.  If passed it would be the steepest increase to minimum wage in US History, it adds inflation after 2020 so
minimum wage will continually rise, and most importantly, this rule will fundamentally change one of the
biggest industries in our tourism-driven state, the restaurant industry, by eliminating the tip credit. 



No on Question 2: Official SMMC Stance

Vote No on 2:
It’s Bad for Maine’s Business Recruitment & Growth

After surveying the membership, the Southern Midcoast Maine Chamber is
urging Maine citizens to vote NO on Question 2: The 3% Surcharge on Incomes Over $200,000

The Southern Midcoast Maine Chamber works with business owners daily and understands the importance of a quality education.  Our students of today are our workforce of tomorrow, and we believe that we always need to provide the best education for our students in Maine.  Yet, we do not feel that the solution presented by Question 2 is fair or equitable.  In the long run, it drastically hurts the business community in Maine.
