During the past 10 years, I have performed at least a hundred times, singing a song I wrote and recorded about the Vietnam experience. In all those years and performances, I have never seen, or met, any of the state political leaders, except for one.
I helped Michaud serve spaghetti at a supper in Rumford to help displaced workers at the local paper plant. Virtually everywhere the Moving Vietnam Wall appeared in Maine, he was there to honor veterans. He wore New Balance sport shoes in Congress to promote Maine-made businesses
My first visit and physical at the new Veterans Administration clinic in Lewiston was made possible because of Michaud.
If it works, don't fix it. Mike Michaud works for all Mainers.
