As the November election approaches, I would like to thank state Rep. Jane Eberle for her legislative service and urge South Portland and Cape Elizabeth voters to ensure her re-election. Her knowledge of, connection to and genuine fondness for the citizens of our community will be crucial in advocating for our specific needs during the next two years.
Jane’s legislative initiatives have addressed a wide range of critical issues: human health, the environment, wildlife resources, energy efficiency, business, research and development and K-16 education. She is anxious to continue her work in solving tax imbalance, health-care and insurance issues, and food and energy prices.
Jane has been a stalwart supporter of efforts to keep campaign signs off public property, both locally and statewide. She will continue to have yard signs only in yards, where they belong (a practice that I wish all candidates and causes would follow).
Sensitive to the current economic times, Jane is a “traditionally funded” candidate for this election cycle. She has chosen to forgo accepting publically financed Clean Election funds, though she remains an avid proponent of the program. She has returned a number of unsolicited special interest contributions to her campaign and will donate any leftover campaign funds to Maine’s LIHEAP (Low Income Heating Assistance Plan) program.
Jane has served the citizens of Cape Elizabeth and South Portland well and deserves to be re-elected to a fourth and final term as our state representative.
