Participating in Democracy


I had the opportunity to attend and be a part of an in district meeting with Larry Bliss and MPA. My wife is interning at MPA and invited me. Before I get to the meeting itself I have to say that Jennie was very impressive with her knowledge of the healthcare issues going on in Maine now and her succictanty in discussing it. I asked about increasing state revenue, especially in the face of cuts to education and social services. These two areas receive the bulk of the state budget (as they should) and are the first to go up to the chopping block when money needs to be ‘saved’. Anyway it was a very interesting experience that I have my wife to thank for including me in. Thanks wife!
