Falmouth has a strong voice in the Maine Legislature: District 44 Rep. Teresa Pierce. For the past two years, Teresa has worked to develop economic opportunities, protect the environment, promote clean energy, and strengthen public education at all levels.
These past two years, I worked with Teresa on an initiative to address the problem of summer learning loss. Providing more access to programs that help students to continue reading and learning over the summer means a faster start to a new school year.
Rather than reviewing the previous year’s curriculum, teachers can immediately start presenting new material, building upon previous learning. Teresa diligently developed and guided this legislation through the legislative process. She involved many stakeholders and advocated effectively.
Teresa regularly communicates with citizens, inviting ideas and suggestions. She thoughtfully represents Falmouth. Please vote on Nov. 8 and join me in re-electing Democrat Teresa Pierce to the Maine House of Representatives.
