For four years, the Maine Economic Growth Council has been setting benchmarks to chart the state's progress, but the benchmarks keep changing. The council documents Maine's performance in about 50 categories including voter turnout, racial diversity, and women's pay, but Craig Freshley of the Maine Development Foundation said he doesn't call much attention to the annual reports because of the benchmark changes. State senator Philip Harriman, who is also a council member, said the members are supposed to be able to draw conclusions at the end of 10 years, but that isn't going to happen if the benchmarks keep getting manipulated.
