President Jackson thanks administration for keeping Wilton Call Center open

AUGUSTA – The Maine Department of Health and Human Services has announced that the administration had rescinded its request to end the lease at the Wilton Call Center and has entered into a new one-year contract. Senate President Troy Jackson, D-Allagash, and House Speaker Ryan Fecteau, D-Biddeford, release a statement, praising the administration for reversing course: 

“Today, the 45 Mainers who work at the Wilton Call Center to support the Maine Department of Health and Human Services can breathe a sigh of relief, knowing the jobs they rely on to earn a good wage and provide for their families aren’t going anywhere. We applaud Gov. Janet T. Mills, Commissioner Jeanne Lambrew and the Department for hearing workers’ concerns and taking quick action to protect these jobs during these tumultuous times. At this point, trying to solve this problem through the Legislative process would have taken weeks if not longer, causing unnecessary anguish and uncertainty. We’re grateful that the Department was able to use all the tools at their disposal to come up with a swift resolution.”
