Letter to the Editor: Eric Brakey won’t stand up for his constituents
I respectfully disagree with the lady who claims that Republican State Senate candidate Eric Brakey will stand up for the rights of Mainers like he did for the Maine Sportsmen’s Alliance’s alleged right to carry a concealed weapon without license or background check.
Brakey is a professionally trained actor who came to Maine in 2012 to run Libertarian Ron Paul’s failed presidential campaign.
Two years later, Brakey, an out-of-state political opportunist with big out-of-state money, ran and won a seat in the Maine State Senate.
Over the past 10 years, Brakey ran for State Senate in 2014, U.S. Senate in 2018, U.S. House Representatives in 2020, and later that year, Secretary of State. of Maine. And here we are in 2022, and he’s running for the state senate again.
During his time as co-chair of the Legislative Health and Human Services Committee, Brakey demonstrated little to no concern for the rights of abused and neglected children, and supported the efforts of former Governor Paul LePage to cut funding for child welfare and public health services. Services. Not a word came out of his mouth when the Riverview Psychiatric Center lost its accreditation due to poor management and patient abuse, including tasing.
The Maine Sports Alliance gave Brakey an A+ for supporting the rights of a minority of people who want to carry concealed weapons, but he gets an F+ from me for ignoring health rights and to the welfare of the Mainers whom he did not represent.
