Collins Event Now Closed

Via e-mail from Peter Fandel, Program Coordinator for Bangor Foreign Policy Forum:

Thank you all for contacting the Bangor Foreign Policy Forum regarding the talk on May 19th by Senator Susan Collins. Due to the overwhelming response for this event, we will be unable to seat those who are not either members of the forum or
invited guests of members. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience but hope you can join us at a future event.

As regular readers know, as far as we can tell Sen. Collins hasn't appeared before adult Mainers in a free, public forum for well over a year.

So this event seemed like an exceedingly rare opportunity to hear from the junior senator, and maybe even pose a question. And last we heard, seating for non-members was going to be available on a first-come, first-served basis.

So what changed? We'll see if we can find out.

UPDATE: It's worth remembering that this event--now a strictly private affair--is being held at the Bangor Public Library.
