I would like to provide my solid endorsement to re-elect state Rep. Teresa Pierce, D-Falmouth, in House District 44. Before Teresa became a state representative, our family made an intentional quality-of-life move to Falmouth from halfway across the country. We did not know anyone when we first arrived. Teresa introduced herself and welcomed us into the community. For this, we are forever grateful. The excellent public schools in Falmouth were a primary draw for moving here and Teresa has worked tirelessly for our schools and all schools across Maine. Teresa realizes that a quality education that prepares its students for our changing communities and our changing world is our greatest long-term economic development plan. Teresa also realizes that to get things done in public office, it requires the ability to work across party lines. Let’s re-elect Teresa in November.
