When I think of strong voices on health-care issues, one of the people to come to mind is House District 46 Rep. Anne Graham, D-North Yarmouth. A nurse practitioner and stalwart advocate for increasing access to care, Graham has used her experience and expertise to develop and pass measures to improve the health of all Mainers.
By avoiding political tactics and instead choosing to educate other lawmakers on the importance of the program, Graham built a strong coalition behind ideas and bills that help Maine people.
Graham fought for accepting federal health-care dollars to insure nearly 70,000 Mainers, never losing faith or confidence despite a divided government. This determination and smart leadership are what ignites lawmakers, and give them something to rally behind.
I’m proud to serve alongside Graham. I look forward to what we may continue to accomplish together in the Legislature.
