About the Blog


Hi, I'm Mike Tipping.

I started Maine Politics in January, 2005 and wrote regularly for about a year before my job got in the way. I restarted the blog at its present location in July of 2008 and wrote here for several years until my other writing commitments caught up with me.

I now write a a blog for the Bangor Daily News and a column for the Portland Press Herald.

I live in Westbrook and work as communications director for the Maine People's Alliance and the Maine People's Resource Center.

Feel free to drop me a line.
