Winthrop — Democrat Craig Hickman says he’s running for the Maine House of Representatives because “it’s time for a new beginning.” Up against incumbent Rep. Pat Flood, R-Winthrop, Hickman is competing for the District 82 seat in the Nov. 2 election. If he wins, he’ll represent the citizens of Winthrop and Readfield.
“I’m trying to give people a choice. There are two really good people running for this seat,” Hickman said. “People have a choice and it’s probably going to be a tough choice for some people, and that’s the way it should be in a democracy.”
The organic farmer and co-owner of Annabessacook Farm Bed & Breakfast believes he can bring a fresh voice to the Legislature, one that will speak for the people and not corporations.
“I’m new, I’m bold and I’m blunt. I want to serve the people, and I want to say all the things the people want to say. I feel like I’ll get something done if I start planting the seeds and let the Legislature be accountable to the people,” he said.
“I don’t know everything, but I’m a good listener and I’m a quick study. I want the people to be my library. The people come first.”
