[ARCHIVED] Three new mayors tout regional efforts

Saco Mayor Doyle speaks while mayors Synder and Foley listen.

Three newly elected mayors  - Saco Mayor William Doyle, Westbrook Mayor Mike Foley, and Portland Mayor Kate Snyder - all spoke about the importance of thinking as a region at our annual Welcome & Congrats party at Northeast Air. 

Mayor Doyle said the Saco exit on the Maine Turnpike is the toll road's busiest exit and that the region needs to focus on building a better public transportation system. 

"We are all in this together," Doyle said.

Foley said it was exciting that so much was going on in the region in transportation, workforce development and housing.

Snyder said Portland and the region are in a "wonderful position" to manage growth in a positive way. 

Twenty-three elected officials attended the event, which was held on Dec. 12 at Northeast Air.  The event was co-sponsored by the Portland Regional Chamber of Commerce.
