The congressman visited Mount Vernon, Oakland and Gardiner for a “listening tour” Friday afternoon.

U.S. Rep. Jared Golden, D-2nd District, speaks with local business owners Friday at FirstPark in Oakland. Golden was tapped to be on the rural broadband task force last month and talked about getting reliable WiFi to rural areas. Oakland recently received a $15,000 rural broadband grant to evaluate its infrastructure and prepare to expand internet access for businesses on Main Street. Morning Sentinel photo by Michael G.
