I had the pleasure of chatting with Eric Brakey, who is running for the Maine Senate, and I must say that I was pleased with what he had to say.

He is very concerned about where Maine is headed. I believe that he will work hard to putting an end to overspending, fight against higher taxes and will look for ways to encourage young people to stay here in the state instead of leaving.

He is concerned about the elderly and how the higher costs of energy, food and medical is affecting their quality of life.

He is a strong advocate for sportsmen.

Genuine and fresh is how I describe Eric Brakey. He has my vote.
