For a Maine workforce that is vibrant and provides Maine with workers who have the skills to compete nationally and globally, then join me in electing Democrat Teresa Pierce to the state Legislature from House District 44.

Teresa has been involved in education for years. She served for six years on the board of the Falmouth Education Foundation, two of those years as president, and while serving on the Falmouth Town Council she staked out a position for fiscally responsible school budgets for Falmouth, without sacrificing quality of education.

Teresa supports access to pre-kindergarten for all children. It has been shown that early childhood education provides children with a solid foundation that underscores the investment in later educational years and ultimately in the job market.

Let’s put someone in the House who will advocate for a strong, Maine economy. Please vote for Teresa Pierce on Nov. 4.
