Jonathan D. Yellowbear, a constitutional conservative, is running for the Maine House District 80 seat.
The district includes the towns of Monmouth, Litchfield and Wales.
According a release issued by the candidate, “He is a supporter of the FairTax, and likes what the Tea Party Movement has accomplished, holding both Democrats and Republicans accountable for their respective actions.”
Yellowbear has owned his own part-time business since 1988. Yellowbear is a trained gunsmith with a working knowledge of the firearms industry.
Yellowbear is the co-founder and president of the non-profit Odamogan Living History Museum, which has a Web site: www.odamogan-museum.org.
Beyond his part-time business Yellowbear helps Maine teachers fulfill their mandate in state law on teaching Maine’s Native American history and culture by going into schools and doing presentations, and teaching at other venues, his release stated.
Yellowbear has seen the problems that small businesses face from day to day and that is why he is running for the House District 80 seat, he stated.
Yellowbear is attending a 5 p.m. Meet and Greet at the Litchfield Sportsman’s Club on Saturday, April 17, with Paul LePage, a Republican candidate for governor.
