Looking back with Speaker Mark Eves, Part One

On this episode of the Beacon Podcast, Ben Chin interviews Maine House Speaker Mark Eves, looking back on his eight years in office.

In part one, they discuss how, in the few short years after Eves first became involved in politics by attending a local Democratic caucus, he won a seat in a successful challenge to a Republican legislator, chaired the Health and Human Services Committee, and then ran for Leadership of the House.
