I am writing to endorse Democratic state Rep. Sara Gideon in House District 48. As a Freeport resident, I have known Sara as a parent, Freeport town councilor and a state representative. Sara has done an exemplary job keeping us informed about the state’s progress by communicating through local meetings and explanatory newsletters and emails.
I am a local educator at Mast Landing School in Freeport. Even with her hectic schedule, Gideon has taken the time to volunteer in my classroom and in our fifth grade on numerous occasions helping to inform our students of the process of our state government using current concerns at that level.
What most impresses me about Sara is her commitment to listen to local people’s concerns and making informed decisions based on her research of opinions of those she represents.
