    Re: Congratulations to Craig Hickman!

    Congrats Craig! I hope you'll be able to accomplish something positive for the citizens of your state.

    By the way is being representative a full time job in Maine?

    Wow, congratulations! Now I wished I lived in Maine. (Or at least had a coastal cottage...)

    Congrats Craig!

    If you follow your theme of "Man of the People", your constituents should be well served! Lord knows we need more politicians who know that they are to serve "We the People".

    Enjoy the challenges. You know it won't be easy, but the rewards will be knowing you did your best.
    And count on every one of us, non-constituents, for advise (if we may be fortunate for you to ask for it) and support.
    We may not live in Maine. But we wish you and your state the best.
    This is beautiful.

    I just may take you up on your offer of advice.

    It is a part-time job with a calendar purposely befitting a farmer. Session is from December or January through June. I couldn't have even considered serving otherwise.

    Thank you all for your well wishes. The phone is already ringing off the hook and I haven't even been sworn in.

    What an adventure awaits.

    I'll definitely keep you posted as best I can.

    Overseas ballots were counted at the end of the week. We received 16 of the 19 votes cast. Only one of the 19 votes cast was from a civilian.

    That's really good - I had an impression that military personell are more likely to be Republicans. As for civilians those living overseas, people tend to lose contact with local isues after many years abroud. I have a colleague at work from US (Michigan) and I asked if he is going to vote and he said yes, but only for president and senate.

    One veteran who came home from Iraq not long ago told me that he used to almost always vote Republican but no more. "The GOP sends us to war," he said, "but the Democrats take care of us when we come home."

    I'd like to see the able-bodied take up farming. For all sorts of reasons.

    Re: Congratulations to Craig Hickman!

    Someone created that page the day after the election. Was a surprise to me.

    I've had to edit a bit of it.

    Great picture, Craig. I love the look on your face. Ready to take on the world with a smile.
