Democratic candidate Dr. Carl Perrin returned to New Jersey after a grand tour of Maine. Everywhere he went, supporters greeted him with plastic bags full of returnable cans and bottles. They overwhelmed the bottle redemption centers throughout Cumberland County to cash in all those returnables.
All told, they raised over $200, more than enough to pay the candidate’s expenses for his tour. With the money left over he threw a beer party for his all-volunteer campaign staff. Those Mainers really appreciate cheap beer.
