Sen. Needleman, Rep. Carpino Welcome Bond Funding for Replacement of Portland Secondary School Track

Today, State Senator Norm Needleman (D-Essex) and State Representative Christie Carpino (R-Portland) welcomed the State Bond Commission’s placement of $500,736 on its March 31 meeting agenda intended for the replacement of the track at Portland Secondary School.

“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.”

“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.

In the Bond Commission’s March 31 agenda, $500,736 is earmarked to fund the replacement of the track at Portland Secondary School. The funding’s release is contingent on the Commission’s final approval.
