A good day for Guilford and Piscataquis County

Posted on Facebook  by  Piscataquis County Sheriff Robert Young on Piscataquis County Sheriff's Office page, June 5, 2020.

The President’s visit has come and gone. It was a good day for Guilford and one surely to be long remembered. While crowd size is difficult to measure, we’re estimating at least 2000 people lined the main drag.

It was a good day for the President’s supporters and protestors. While loud at times as they cheered and jeered back and forth, they allowed each other space and things were peaceful. No arrests, no damage, only minor issues. Wish the rest of the country could catch this same spirit. Disagree passionately while allowing others the space to think differently.

I am grateful for the tremendous and capable assistance we received from other law enforcement agencies. 60 Sheriffs and Deputies from around the state. An equal number of Maine State Troopers. A strong contingent of US Border Patrol officers. Maine Game Wardens. The FBI. And, the very impressive Secret Service. Like a well-crafted puzzle, law enforcement worked in unity and accord. When the President comes to town, there is no stone left unturned and no detail left to chance. My thanks to the many officers who spent a hot day under a burning sun to make this a day of celebration for the folks of Puritan Medical / HardwoodProducts.

I was proud today to be the Sheriff in a county where people cheer as a cruiser rolls down the street, where they shake your hand and thank-you for your service. I know life is different in rural settings. Issues change and while people are people, there’s a different way of looking at life. Rural life doesn’t work for everyone. For those who’ve come to appreciate the slower pace, the meaning of “neighbor” and the simpler things, it works.

It was a good day for Guilford and for Piscataquis County. The President came to town. Yahoo!
