Sen. Troy Jackson, D-Allagash, spoke on MPBN’s Maine Calling radio on May 14, and I couldn’t get through with so many others calling in.

I wanted to thank Jackson, a Democratic candidate for Maine’s 2nd District, for his backbone. First, for withstanding the many unprofessional insults Gov. Paul LePage felt privileged to sling at him over the legislative sessions; and secondly, for steadfastly representing the core values of us who are not moneyed.
