I am looking forward to meeting everyone this campaign season at the doors, around town and at community debates and forums. Despite the challenges with our governor, we have been able to protect many important laws and programs and I am looking forward to talking about the challenges, issues and successes in Augusta. It is important to keep the campaign professional and have the debates hosted by a nonpartisan organization. This is standard practice across the state and nation.
The Chamber of Commerce and League of Women Voters have done a tendentious job in the past running these debates. There are a host of environmental, educational, health and other organizations, that would like to have an opportunity to highlight their message with the candidates. If a candidate wants to donate their funds to help with the event, there is nothing stopping them.
We should strive to give the people of Brunswick the most objective and professional venue possible to learn about the candidates where everyone feels welcome and can make an informed discussion. I am looking forward to the upcoming campaign, as meeting everyone and hearing your thoughts are one of the highlights of my job as your representative.
Rep. Alexander Cornell du Houx
