Down East: LegSpace

A big part of creating the Citizen's Guide to the Maine Legislature is gathering information on every member of the state House and Senate. Most legislators are happy to fill out a survey to get their opinions in print, but some forget or choose not to. For some legislators, I've had to search online for information.

Sometimes too much information.
