Rising from the ash-heap of Maine politics...can you guess who?
Johnny Richardson, that is. Former head of Maine's PHS demographic; Speaker of the House; and disqualified candidate for Governor two years ago.
He's taken out papers to run for the open at-large seat on the Brunswick Town Council. At the moment, it looks like he will go unchallenged, since Joanne King, long time councilor, with most of her years as Council Chair, has indicated she will not seek re-election.
Funny thing is that Madame King served as Johnny's campaign treasurer in the ill-fated effort of 2010.
Fortunately, they still have some unused signatures from that effort that can be 'cut and pasted' on to the council race nomination papers.
Should be fun to watch John-boy engage with the mixed bag of council members, and see how long it takes him to convince them he should be chair right out of the blocks.
