In this era of vicious partisan politics, this video might surprise you. Democrat Barry Hobbins is running to be the state representative from District 133 in Maine. The mayor, Mark Johnston, is a lifelong Republican. Here's what Johnston had to say about Hobbins today, October 31, 2012.
Hobbins’ opponent is Demitroula Kouzounas. I happened to get a look at one of Kouzounas’ attack flyers, distributed by the Maine Republican Party. It was kind of a strange piece, actually, emphasizing that Hobbins “is a good guy.” In a weird way, the flyer managed to highlight Hobbins’ experience as a legislator, and between the lines Kouzounas seems to concede that her opponent knows his way around Augusta pretty well. Is that bad? Seems to me when critical issues are being discussed, knowing your way around the block might come in pretty handy. The Mayor of Saco says it very well in this video.
