The Portland Townsman is a new publication seeking to provide independent news and opinion for Greater Portland, Maine. We believe that local government, local economy, and local community are of far greater importance to the average citizen than the distant din of national affairs, yet people, especially younger people, are often out of the loop. We believe that the people of Greater Portland should be informed, active citizens of their town.
