About Ed.

A political activist since his first year in college and his involvement in the Campaign of John F. Kennedy, Ed. is now a full time Political Consultant since retiring from a 31 year career as an American History and Political Science Instructor, during which he was repeatedly recognized and awarded for his excellence in teaching and research, having been awarded "The Ashland Teacher of The Year Teacher Achievement Award” in 1989.

Having held elective office at every level of the teaching profession: local, district, state and national, Ed. has established and outstanding reputation in the labor movement community.

An Experienced Campaign director and manager, Ed. has built campaign organizations, (Candidate and Issues), from the ground up including: total strategy planning, campaign planning, design, development, staffing, training, organization, fund raising, personnel selection and recruitment, communications (including press, radio, TV, literature development and speech writing) and successful execution.

His legendary ability to analyze campaign progress and to evaluate polling data and call elections precinct by precinct has earned him the nickname "The Precinct Master".

Ed. is a Graduate of Central Connecticut State College, The New York Institute of Photography and Kent State University with majors in History and Political Science and minors in Psychology and Computer Science.

He is a practicing certified Parliamentarian of 30 years.

He is also currently working on a photography book: “A Different Vision: Close Up and Macrophotography, Tools and Techniques. Ed. admits he is now over a year behind on the completion of that work.

In that area of his life, Ed. is a life long Nikon devotee, but also utilizes SLR cameras from Olympus and Contax (no longer in production). His choice of a range finder street camera is the Contax G#3.

He has not made the full transition to the digital domain, preferring film, he’ll tell you the quality does not suit him yet…as related to cost as well. His films: Fuji all the way. Chromogenic B&W films as a matter of need and experimentation.

Ed. is also has extensive experience with invasive computer elements, i.e., viruses, spyware and advocates a multi-perimeter defense system and is able to identify and root out even the most difficult of malware.

He deals with those issues from: should have a question or problem.

A bit of a throw back, Ed’s pack of camels and coffee cup are never far away and his computer is an “extreme machine” dubbed by his friends as “The Fire Breathing Dragon”.

On the Coffee side of things here is The Café Le Coffee, Ed’s favorite sources of coffee beans to hand grind and blend are Starbucks, (many) Caribou Coffee, (many and interesting specials), S&D Coffee (European Select Blend), Royal Cup of Coffee (Villa Rey Sumatra), Seattle’s Best (Some of those old café and press room type blends), Peet’s and a surprise to most: Trader Joe’s Volcanic Blend.

I don’t pass by any local/regional blender without a visit. There are always surprises. I almost always start with some Sumatra as part of the base of any blend, when I am not French Press brewing it by itself.

Hi, Ed:
I am an impeachment candidate in Maine. I announced Oct. 9 on a pro-impeachment, end the war and war policy now, single-payer health care platform. I am for truth:9/ll, peak oil, state of our economy/honor: end war, honor soldier's sacrifices/justice:impeach the bastards/and mercy: keep our citizens healthy for the fights to come.

I have been sorely aggravating my opponent Tom Allen, who is not for impeachment. Also, the candidates who are running for his open seat in the House where 3 of them are pro-impeachment, but not telling him to sign onto HR333.

I began a hunger strike and today is the tenth day. This is for the purpose of getting these candidates to get Rep. Allen to sign for impeachment. I am striking until they commit to publicly state that he should do this. So far, no responses. Such is the state of affairs in Maine.

I'm amazed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog that's both educative and engaging, and without a doubt,
you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is something which not enough people are speaking intelligently about.
I'm very happy that I came across this in my search for something concerning this.

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is needed to get setup? I'm assuming having a blog like
yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very internet smart so I'm not
100% certain. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just
your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and everything.
Nevertheless imagine if you added some great photos or videos to give your posts more, "pop"!
Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this
blog could certainly be one of the very best in its field.
Terrific blog!
