RUMFORD, ME - Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap will preside over a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony at 11:30am on Wednesday, September 3rd at the newest Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) Office located at 65 Lincoln Street in Rumford.

Secretary Dunlap will be joined by Patty Morneault, Deputy Secretary of State for the BMV; Senator John Patrick of Rumford; Representative Sheryl Briggs of Mexico; Representative Matthew Peterson of Rumford and Town Manager John Madigan.

The Rumford office replaced the branch previously located in Mexico.
