BANGOR (AP) – The group seeking to repeal Maine’s school consolidation law is making a final push to collect another 15,000 signatures.

The Maine Coalition to Save Schools faces a Jan. 28 deadline to collect 55,087 signatures from registered voters for the proposal to be considered by the Legislature this session. The group has about 40,000 signatures so far.

Organizer Lawrence “Skip” Greenlaw says several towns, including Jonesboro, East Machias, Cutler and Alexander, have voted to raise funds to support the repeal effort and others are considering similar actions.
