BELFAST (AP) — A group of Democratic lawmakers will visit the Belfast area this week to meet with workers as part of their statewide “jobs tour.”

House Speaker Mark Eves will join Rep. Erin Herbig and Christine Burstein on Thursday’s trip to Belfast and Liberty, where they will meet with workers and officials at Revision Energy, AthenaHealth and Liberty Printing.

Eves says Belfast is “leading the way when it comes to writing Maine’s comeback story.”

Democrats began the tour in January at Pratt & Whitney’s manufacturing facility in North Berwick. They say the goal is to highlight the need and develop strategies for bringing jobs and better wages to Maine. They’ve also visited Aroostook and Kennebec Counties, among others.
