One of the Three Tribal Representatives to the Maine State House Switches from Democratic to Green

Maine is the only state with any tribal representatives to the state legislature. The three tribal representatives represent, respectively, the Passamaquoddy, Penobscot, and Maliseet people. The tribes select them by their own process. They can introduce bills and participate in the committee process, but do not cast a vote on the floor.

On Tuesday, Representative Henry John Bear of the Maliseets changed his registration from Democratic to Green. He had sought election to a regular position in 2016 from district 144, and had won the Democratic nomination, but then he had withdrawn from that public election. He has been the Maliseet representative since 2012. Thanks to Joshua H. for this news.

  1. How about other special interest group agents directly in legislative bodies ???

    Surviving American Indians (after 1776-1890 evil genocides) were made naturalized USA Citizens in 1924/1940 USA laws — NO longer *special*.

  2. As team players, us proportionalists understand that pluralists cannot tolerate equal treatment and equal free speech time, and that free speech about our unity must be squashed at all costs.

    The pluralistic party bosses can only think in one way and no one can be permitted to appear more enlightened than they.

    The proportionalists will continue the work in a professional manner, do our jobs, and struggle through the decades in silence while our principles are at a level 100 times more detailed.
