Maine Governor Janet Mills shares poetic aspect

AUGUSTA, Maine  — Many Mainers know Democratic Gov. Janet Mills as a level-headed chief, a realistic politician or perhaps a former tough-minded prosecutor. However there’s one other aspect to the governor — she’s a poet.

“If extra politicians knew poetry, and extra poets knew politics, I’m satisfied the world can be somewhat higher place by which to dwell,” Mills mentioned, quoting John F. Kennedy at her inauguration final month.

Her internal poet emerged after she dropped out of Colby School and headed to San Francisco for the Summer time of Love earlier than returning to varsity and later attending the College of Maine College of Regulation.
