WATERVILLE, Maine – Senate President Troy Jackson, D-Allagash received the President’s Award for Legislative Service from the Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine at the organization’s annual banquet in Waterville on Sept. 9. The award recognizes Jackson’s support for Maine sportsmen and women, and Maine’s outdoor recreation economy.

“Hunting, fishing, hiking and other outdoor recreation activities represent more than just cherished pastimes, they fuel rural communities, bring families together and instill folks with a deep appreciation for Maine’s wildlife, landscape and resources,” said Jackson. “As a lifelong Mainer, proud outdoorsmen and longtime SAM member, it’s a real honor to receive this award for my work to preserve this rich part of our heritage and economy in the Legislature.”

SAM is a statewide organization that has a proven record of leadership at the state and federal level for interacting with the legislature, state agencies, local communities, sportsman groups and others to enhance and preserve Maine’s outdoor heritage.
