Mark Hyland: Brakey played politics instead of helping constituents

Well, it didn’t take long. Sen. Eric Brakey voted against heating assistance for Mainers in his first vote in the current Senate.

He ran for election on smaller government and lower taxes. The heating assistance bill would have returned $450 of our tax dollars to nearly 800,000 eligible Maine taxpayers. He voted against.

His reasoning was that he opposed Gov. Janet Mills’ COVID policies. How are those two issues related?

Eric Brakey refused to send us our tax dollars to pay for this winter’s high heating fuel costs. Playing politics rather than helping his constituents.

We should remember that the next time he runs for office.
