Tom Sawyer

Down East - Senate District 32

I had a pretty high fever when I wrote this week's Down East post. I'm not sure how much sense it makes, but it is very long, and that should count for something.

The Bangor/Hermon seat presents a fascinating race. Both Joe Perry and Tom Sawyer have a long history in politics and ran against each other once before, in 2004. I felt myself drawn into their stories and the details of the race and ended up writing more than I intended to. Future profiles will likely be a bit shorter.
