"Politics + Other Mistakes" piece on Rep. John Richardson, D-Brunswick, current
"Politics + Other Mistakes" piece on Rep. John Richardson, D-Brunswick, current speaker of the Maine House of Representatives. Richardson will be forced out of the Legislature this year by term limits. He faces the dilemma of how to keep himself politically visible while waiting to capitalize on a Congressional or gubernatorial opening, potentially years away. Richardson could be appointed as commissioner of the Department of Economic and Community Development, or even run for attorney general. However, with Democrat Steve Rowe already occupying post of attorney general, neither option will likely help his long-term political aspirations.
