I am supporting Sen. Cathy Breen, D-Falmouth, in her return to state Senate District 25, representing Chebeague Island, Cumberland, Falmouth, Gray, Long Island, Yarmouth and part of Westbrook. Cathy has helped the citizens of her district by successfully leading a bi-partisan coalition to save Land for Maine’s Future bonds, supporting doubling of the Homestead tax exemption, and voting to reduce State income taxes.

Her Republican opponent recently moved from Georgia to Falmouth. While in Georgia he served in the Legislature and co-sponsored a bill to restrict a woman’s access to an abortion. He may well introduce a similar measure if elected in Maine. I do not believe that the government should be involved in women’s reproductive health-care decisions. This is why I will be voting to re-elect Sen. Cathy Breen.
