Many of us, from both sides of the aisle, are eager for the political winds to change. I believe change can begin with Angus King as our U.S. senator. I urge those who are new residents of this state, and those who now are our younger voters, to take the opportunity to listen to King’s message. He calls for compromise to solve our nation’s problems – compromise as envisioned by our founding fathers and compromise that is so vitally needed today. Only through working together can we move forward. It will require additional third voices, but Maine can do its part to begin that change by electing Angus King.
A state’s motto is said to reflect the character and beliefs of its citizens. Our motto “Dirigo” means “I lead.” If we are to change government from within, then let Maine take the lead and send King’s strong third voice to Washington.
