Emily Trask-Eaton is not a one-issue candidate. She grew up in the small fishing village of Bernard in Bass Harbor, the daughter of a lobsterman and a schoolteacher. As a child, she would go down to the dock that was almost in her front yard and eat scallops as they were being shucked. Her youth was spent on and around the water. Idyllic, until her father died when she was 13 years old. Her mother was left with five children to raise on her own, which she did with panache. Emily and her siblings all grew up to be productive citizens.
