Edgecomb – Braydon and Kendra Peters-Robinson left the city life in Connecticut behind to start a new one in Maine, arriving early this morning and getting themselves appointed in town government immediately.
“We met near here, actually. We were waiting in line for a lobster roll at Red’s Eats,” Braydon said, “and we’ve both always loved Maine, so we thought, why not move there and set ourselves up in town government as soon as we can?”
Kendra agrees. “The sooner we can introduce our progressive values and make sure nothing about our idyllic town ever changes, the better.”
Kendra is on the selectboard, medical services board, board of appeals, and is the new town animal control officer, while Braydon serves on the fire department, planning committee, and the school board.
“We don’t plan to have kids, but if we do, we want them to have the best education we heard about on a really great episode of Radiolab,” Braydon said.
Once the couple is finished unpacking, something Kendra said “will begin as soon as the movers arrive,” they plan to undertake radical changes to make things more comfortable for them and people like them.
“We were surprised to see a few Trump bumper stickers, so we think if we just slowly raise the cost of living through tax increases, while decreasing the existing property tax base by encouraging more non-profit galleries and museums, we can nudge them in the right direction,” Braydon said, pointing inland.
“I’ve never felt a sense of community like I do here in Edgmund or whatever it’s called.”
As of the time this article was finished, Kendra announced her run for state senate.
