Support for Peterson
To the Editor:
Anyone who has known Matt Peterson is well aware of his passion for Mixed Martial Arts (MMA). He’s been a devoted fan and follower, someone who has encouraged fighters from this area and managed some as they got launched in the sport. Unfortunately, MMA was not a sanctioned and regulated sport in Maine until Matt Peterson went to Augusta to represent District 92 in the Maine House.
Matt did his homework, developed legislation and made the argument for the positive economic impact that MMA promotions could have in the state. True to his word – Matt has been instrumental on many levels bringing these new opportunities into our region – with the biggest in-state promotions having been held in Lewiston.
Politicians like to talk about jobs. Matt Peterson introduced an idea and carried it all the way through to delivering new opportunities to the many people connected with successful MMA shows in Maine – and beyond. Matt’s got our vote in November.
