Three years ago, when Sara Gideon told me that she was running for Freeport Town Council, I asked her why she wanted to serve. She told me that she believed that if she wanted to live in a safe and prosperous community, it was her duty to take responsibility and work to make Freeport a better place. I have watched Sara do just that.

Sara has been an energetic and trusted leader and a dedicated councilor. She has gone the extra mile to hear her constituents’ concerns, and her initiatives, like the pesticide-free policy, reflect her energy and commitment. Particularly impressive to me is Sara’s role in creating a Code of Ethics for town leaders, which has put Freeport at the forefront among municipalities in the state.

Sara Gideon is not your typical politician. She is running for state representative for all the right reasons, and will represent our district well in Augusta.
