I am writing in support of Democratic Rep. Sara Gideon for re-election to the Maine House representing District 48.
As a long-time Freeport resident and member of the board of directors and treasurer of Freeport Community Services, I have had the opportunity to work closely with Sara on a number of complex issues. Sara always took a thoughtful look at the facts, sought feedback from both sides of an issue and pressed forward with enthusiasm and commitment. I see the same commitment from Sara during her tenure in the Maine House. I have been particularly impressed with her work on state tax reform. She worked with a bipartisan group of legislators to come up with a plan that would benefit all Maine people. The same was true of her sponsorship of the drug overdose bill.
Please support Sara in her bid for re-election. I certainly will.
