Sen. King uses Skype to chat with Maine constituents

The Associated Press

PORTLAND — Sen. Angus King is trying to meet face-to-face with his Maine constituents, even when he's not in the state.

King on Thursday used Skype to talk to Shipyard Brewing Co. employees while he was at the U.S. Capitol in Washington and they were gathering for their annual employee meeting in Portland. It was first time King used the video-chat Internet service to meet with constituents since taking office early last month.

During the session, King spoke with Shipyard Brewing President Fred Forsley and Sales Director Bruce Forsley and congratulated them on the company's continued growth.

A King spokesman says that King plans to meet with students in Maine schools via Skype on a monthly basis beginning in March.
