O’Brien Bows Out of West End Race
Democrat Robert O’Brien has announced that he will not seek his party’s nomination to run against West End State Representative John Eder for the local seat in the Maine State Legislature. O’Brien would have had to face fellow Democrat Jon Hinck in a Democratic primary in June as well.
O’Brien cited that extra layer of campaigning as a factor in his decision not to run. He also said that it would distract from his other community work - O’Brien is President of both the West End Neighborhood Association and Portland’s Irish American Club. He is the organizer of the upcoming expanded St. Patrick’s Day Parade, which will be held on March 18th.
