Tyler Clark

ByeSpace

Rep. Clark seems to have taken my advice. His MySpace page has been erased.

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.

Also at Down East: an emotional and well-written essay by one laid-off father dealing with the state's unemployment system, and my post from last week on equal marriage.

New Legislators

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.
