What do you know about your elected officials? Do you know what makes them, and the districts they represent, unique? Or why they ran for office in the first place? When we talk about politics, the national conversation seems to overshadow everything. But when it comes to the policies that impact your everyday life, your neighborhood officials are just as important as who’s in the White House. Join award-winning Spectrum News journalist Lindsey Christ as she helps you get to know “The People's People,” what makes them tick, and the work they do on your behalf. Each season, we’ll focus on a different part of the country and in our first season, we’re heading Down East to the state of Maine.
