The last few weeks have been one of the craziest stretches of time in my life. I've had finals, the holidays, a job search and a 600-mile move and I'm just starting to get adjusted to my new home of South Portland. In the midst of this, the blogging on this site has become a bit anemic. I hope to get back to a more regular posting schedule soon.
My new job, which I began just a couple days ago, is Communications Coordinator for the Maine People's Alliance and the Maine People's Resource Center. I'll be working on a variety of issues and campaigns, but my main focus right now is editing and publishing the Citizen's Guide to the 124th Maine Legislature. I'm learning a lot of new things about Maine's legislators in the process, some of which I'll be sure to share here.
I've always had political and philosophical leanings that have informed my writing, but now I'll have more practical interests as well, as the organization I work for is directly involved in a wide swath of progressive issues in Maine. Be sure keep my potential biases in mind as you read the blog.
