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.
WAGM takes a look at the new legislator orientation process and interviews Tyler Clark, the newly-elected representative for District 6 in Aroostook county.
Clark, a recent UMPI graduate and Wal-Mart manager, served as Secretary of the Maine College Republicans. He won his race against Democrat Kyle Green (who replaced Echo Kaply-Smith, who withdrew after winning the primary) to capture the open seat previously held by Democrat Jacqueline Lundeen.
