I’m disappointed that at a time when we lack sane sensibility in Gov. Le-Page, we apparently are also lacking leadership in our own House district.

Steadman Seavey, who represents House District 9 (Kennebunkport and parts of Kennebunk and Biddeford), refused to respond to Speaker Mark Eves’ call to reconvene to discuss what should be done about our erratic governor, who left a vile voice mail message for Rep. Drew Gattine in addition to making racially charged remarks.

Gov. LePage appears unconcerned about the problems his words cause. Without facts or credible research, he says exactly what’s on his mind.

I expect guidance, strength, advocacy for the people of our district and of Maine from my representative. That is why I’ll be voting Nov. 8 for Democrat Diane Denk for state representative. Diane listens to the people of the district, cares about their problems and will use her experience and intelligence on their behalf.
