Jon Reisman is an Associate Professor of Economics and Public Policy at the University of Maine at Machias, where he teaches a variety of courses including Environmental Policy and Political Correctness in American Society.

He worked for Gov. Angus King in 1995, getting rid of federally mandated car testing in Maine. Upon returning to rural Downeast Maine, he led the effort opposing the endangered species listing of the Atlantic salmon. In 1998 he was the GOP nominee to Maine's sprawling 2nd Congressional District.

Prof. Reisman developed his first in the nation "Political Correctness in America" class after Maine's environmental community tried to have him censored by the state Attorney General and Governor in response to his actions opposing the salmon listing. The course is now offered on the web. Prof. Reisman's home page is: http://www.umm.maine.edu/faculty/jreisman/jreisman.html
