Now sitting in a mock legislative session in the actual #Maine house. Thank you #Leadership Maine.

Pennoyer: Personnel costs (including fringe and collective bargaining agreements) are actually only 15% of the #Maine budget. Other: 85%.

Rector: Right now, every single bill in #Maine gets a hearing, even those that have no viability. We need a different triage process.

via Notifier for Chrome

Rector: Don’t always agree with #Maine #governor. Extremes inform, but the real action is in the middle, through consensus.

via Notifier for Chrome

Rector: Much of what you read about politics is theater, it sells newspapers. More important: I represent the values of my district.

via Notifier for Chrome

Rector: The legislature is a great place to be a sponge. A great deal of learning and understanding all the time. #lifelonglearning #maine

via Notifier for Chrome

Rector: #Maine legislators ask: are you a representative or a trustee of the common good? You need to be be comfortable with your decisions.

via Notifier for Chrome

Rector: #Maine’s major 2011 transition was a success due to legislators’ respect, wisdom, and caring for Maine people and the process.

via Notifier for Chrome

Rector: Worth remembering that last year #Maine underwent a significant transition of power, peacefully. A model to the rest of the world.

via Notifier for Chrome

Rector: #Maine Leadership decided to combine Labor and Business committees, and it’s a huge portfolio, so there’s a huge learning curve.

Rector: Serving in the legislature, you need to learn a lot about many things, and be more deeply knowledgeable about a handful of them.
