ABOUT THIS REPORTING
Eleven of Maine’s 16 counties are identified as rural, according to the federal government, meaning approximately 40 percent of the state’s residents reside in a rural county. A member of the Rural News Network, The Maine Monitor regularly covers rural issues — including dedicated coverage of Franklin, Oxford, Somerset and Washington counties.
