Two of my favorite parts:

Here in Maine we’ve worked hard to protect healthcare and jobs. The time has come to protect all Maine citizens against discrimination. How can we say we support Maine’s economy, when we do not protect against workplace discrimination.

Tonight I am announcing “Connect Maine,” a broad and aggressive telecommunications strategy for this state. Connect Maine will give nearly every Mainer the opportunity to plug into the global economy from their community. It will ensure that:
90% of Maine communities have broadband access by 2010; 100% of Maine communities have quality wireless service by 2008; and
Maine’s education system has the technology infrastructure that leads the nation.
