Peter Falkenberg Brown has been a Republican for many years. He was raised in Portland, Maine on the West End. His seventh great grandfather William Browne arrived in Boston (from Scotland) in the 1650s, and his third great grandfather Jonathan Brown was born in Hallowell, Maine in 1776.

Peter is passionate about writing, publishing, public speaking and film. He hopes that someday he can live up to his favorite motto: “Expressing God’s kind and compassionate love in all directions, every second of every day, creates an infinitely expanding sphere of heart.”

~ Deus est auctor amoris et decoris. ~

I know running during this special election for the #45 Legislative Seat will be a challenge. But these are challenging times…. My personal experience running a small family business for almost 30 years has taught me about hard work. Our company would not have survived without keeping our heads down and grinding it out every single day.
