The MFM Convo: “Politicians in Augusta Fall in Love with Themselves” ~ Aaron Chadbourne

5/3/18, Maine First Media Staff Report,

After about three and a half years as Senior Policy Advisor to Gov. Paul LePage, Aaron Chadbourne is moving on to new efforts to revitalize Maine.

Chadbourne made the announcement following the end of the 2018 Legislative Session.

Maine First Media reached out to Chadbourne to participate in our new weekly feature, The MFM Convo.

Every week, a political figure in Maine will casually answer some of the questions that matter to Maine-first residents.

The former LePage advisor answered our queries while on a trip to Washington D.C. where he’s working to bring successful Mainers back to the Pine Tree State.

Chadbourne pulls no punches while answering our questions. While he may have some small policy differences with Maine First Media, Chadbourne is passionate about draining the swamp. According to Chadbourne, “if we want a government that serves the people, we can’t let politicians put themselves on a pedestal, we can’t let them treat government like it’s their plaything, we can’t let government be the answer.”

The 34-year-old Harvard graduate also talks about a $100-Million project he’s working on to revitalize education in rural Maine, explains that the best thing politicians can do to help struggling Mainers is get out of the way, and even shares a story about meeting First Lady Barbara Bush.

Chadbourne is encouraging anyone who wishes to discuss his answers to e-mail him at [email protected]

You don’t want to miss Chadbourne’s “clarion call” for the children of Maine to “rise up and lead.”
