New Kid in the Old ’Hood

Reading Kicks Off Campaign for State Rep in Parkside/Bayside

More than 40 people attended a campaign kickoff party on August 20th for Matt Reading, the Green Independent candidate for the District 119 Parkside/Bayside State House seat, at the Bayside home of Amanda Sears, a woman's health advocate and neighborhood organizer.
Reading is challenging the incumbent Represent-ative Herb Adams, along with the Republican Jason Lavoie. Reading, a 24 year-old Maine native and graduate of the University of Chicago, is seeking to become one of the youngest representatives in the Maine Legislature.
In 2003, Reading served as a college intern in the Augusta office of West End State Representative John Eder.
