Melanie Sachs will get my vote for state representative in the Democratic primary in District 106 (Freeport, Pownal). She is firm in her support of reproductive choice and of marriage equality. I am convinced Melanie brings the best combination of values, skills and experience to the task of getting Maine back on course.
Melanie is a native Mainer and Maine-educated. A social worker with experience in both the private and public sectors, Melanie knows well what most Mainers have had to do to support themselves and their families. She has heard many of us say that affordable health care, a better economy, and affordable quality education are our biggest concerns. Neither state government nor private businesses can solve these problems on their own; Melanie believes that public-private collaboration, controlling costs, and public-sector investment is the only sensible course.
Melanie’s grasp of these issues has earned the support of this 20-year Freeport resident.
