21-year-old Watervillian seeks state House seat, ruffles feathers

There's an article in today's PPH about Henry Beck, a 21-year-old Colby College junior who'll run for the Waterville state House seat now occupied by Democrat Marilyn Canavan. Beck, who currently serves as a Waterville City Council, is one of those go-getters who makes normals like you and me feel bad about ourselves. He's also pissed off some Dems in the state by voicing his opposition to state Net Neutrality laws -- and blogger and Susan Collins staffer Lance Dutson took him to task for doing so in the spring of last year.

(Beck is supporting Chellie Pingree for Congress. Pingree is an enthusiastic longtime supporter of Net Neutrality; she came out to support her future opponent and state senator Ethan Strimling when he proposed Maine's Net Neutrality law in 2007.)
