I am writing to urge my Freeport and Pownal neighbors to support Melanie Sachs in the June 12 Democratic primary for House District 106. I have known Melanie for many years. She is resourceful, articulate, caring and will be a fresh force to serve Freeport and Pownal residents. As I watch Melanie engage with our communities through volunteer leadership roles I see her positive impact. She is an eager listener who is open to diverse views and understands the needs of our communities. Melanie will carry these qualities with her to Augusta, where she will help craft solutions that will benefit us all. Melanie will represent Freeport and Pownal well and will work hard to strengthen our communities and our state. Please join me in giving Melanie your vote on June 12.
