John Richardson’s Moment With Fidel

About This Project

In 2006, Richardson was serving as Maine’s economic development commissioner when he helped former governor Baldacci lead a Maine trade mission to Cuba and met Castro, who died this past Friday.

John, also a former speaker of the Maine House, is pictured fourth to the right of Castro, in the blue shirt and light suit.

John told the story on the Monday Midcoast Morning Buzz.
