ABOUT THIS SERIES
In our mistrust-filled world full of political contention and both fake and devastating news, mustering the courage to have authentic conversations with people can be a challenge.

This concerning state of affairs prompted the newsroom to examine the concept of trust. In this series called “The Maine Trust Project,” we sat down once a month with a Maine resident to discuss this precious commodity. The project revealed which people and institutions Mainers trust and how the concept of trust drives their thought processes and actions.
