AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - Maine House Speaker Mark Eves is holding the latest event in the jobs tour in Lincoln County, where the focus is on the local marine economy.

The Democrat from North Berwick is being joined Tuesday by Democratic Rep. Mike Devin of Newcastle and Republican Rep. Stephanie Hawke of Boothbay Harbor, as well as Democratic Sen. Chris Johnson of Somerville.

They’re going to visit Bigelow labs and Hodgdon Yachts before holding a group discussion at the Darling Marine Center in Walpole.

Eves launched the jobs tour in January to spotlight the need for more jobs and better wages. The event had rolled into a half-dozen counties before Tuesday.
