Hi BDN Blog readers! My name is Matt and I’m a recovering political campaign worker living in Southern Maine. This is the inaugural piece for a daily blog I’ll be doing with the Bangor Daily News, the goal being to get at least one meaty piece out a week, with smaller updates each day as the political news unfolds. We’ll see how I do, but I can’t think of a better time to start something like this than in October during a presidential election year. Special thanks to Matthew Gagnon for hooking me up with the BDN and to Pat Lemieux for getting this blog up and running. Thanks for reading and I look forward to (hopefully) many debates and conversations.
