Among the speakers will be Jake Posik of Maine Heritage Policy Center, former State Representative Heather Sirocki of the Maine First Project, former State Representative Paula Sutton, former State Senator Eric Brakey of the Free Maine Campaign, Julie Rabinowitz of Maine People Before Politics, former U.S. Congressman Bruce Poliquin, and Maine GOP Vice Chair Nick Isgro.
