I have a friend who bought a flooded quarry and turned it into a gorgeous lake, teaming with wildlife. He bought an old building in Rockland on Rankin Street and is turning it into the Maine Museum of Industry. When COVID-19 began and no one could find masks, he started a nonprofit that connected raw materials with volunteers to produce thousands of masks for Mainers in need. Not only is he an entrepreneur himself, but he even mentors entrepreneurs without asking for anything in return.
His name is Mike Mullins. When he isn’t running one of his many businesses or nonprofits, you can find him at home with his three dogs, or on the phone trying to fix problems, or most recently, he could be talking with his neighbors about his candidacy for the Maine House of Representatives.
I’m not a very political person and this is the first candidate I’ve ever written to support. But there is something different about Mike. And in 2020, different couldn’t hurt.
I’m voting for Mike Mullins, and I hope you do too.
