We turn our clocks back on November 5th. We move our city forward on November 7th. Vote Michael Beck for Bangor City Council.

“How will you address the homeless situation and the drug problem? I’d like to be able to enjoy my city again.”

Thank you for your question. I’m with you, I don’t like seeing the symptoms of our housing and substance use crises. Especially when those symptoms cross the line of public safety, such as exposed needles left in parks. First, let’s talk about the problem.

We need better coordination.

It’s not too late for ARPA funds to help.

The City Council has earmarked $700,000 in ARPA funds to cover 2 staff positions. One for homelessness, another for housing. As a city councilor I will ask other members to join me in making the allocations official, and to direct the city manager to begin the search for filling those positions.

Long-term efforts, short-term action.

Everyone in Bangor deserves dignity. And safety.

Pro-Public Safety

Bangor Police Department is committed to public safety.

We don’t have to wait to see a cleaner and safer city.

We can do this. And we must. For our us, for our children, for our future, for our community. For everyone in Bangor. We became the City of Homes after the fire of 1911. Bangor can become the City of Homes once again.

Thank you again for your important question and the opportunity to share my thoughts on it. I ask for your vote on November 7th, and I pledge to waste no time getting to work on this if elected.

Together for Bangor,
Michael Beck
