Several residents of Gables Drive in Yarmouth lost their homes 15 months ago in a propane explosion. One man died.
To add insult to injury, those of us without homes were required to pay a real estate tax based on the full value of our destroyed residences. Democratic state Rep. Janice Cooper came to our aid by sponsoring a bill to provide us some relief. In spite of strong bipartisan support, opposition by the Maine Municipal Association caused her bill to be defeated.
Janice worked very hard for us. She expended a lot of effort on our behalf and was as disappointed as we were at its defeat.
We would like to have Janice Cooper represent us for another term in Augusta. We were witness to her willingness to advocate for her constituents. Her ability to represent us all merits your consideration to vote for her re-election.
