State Senator Justin Chenette has published a full-length children’s book about state government. Chenette is a UMA Student in the Postbaccalaureate Public Administration program.
The title of the book is “The Great Whoopie Pie Debate: A Kids’ Guide to the Maine Legislature”. It chronicles the steps of the legislative process when legislators actually debated whether whoopie pies should be the state dessert.
Chenette plans to donate a copy to area schools with an ultimate goal of sending a book to every elementary school in the state.
