It’s been said that the mark of a good politician is that they listen and truly understand what is being said. This is only one of the impeccable qualities of Melanie Sachs, who is running for state representative for Freeport and Pownal in the Democratic primary. Another positive quality is Melanie’s moral fortitude, but my favorite quality is her sense of humor. Melanie was raised and educated in Maine. Melanie is the first person in her family to go to college, where she graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Bates College and went on to begin her illustrious career. Melanie was born a leader, and after receiving her master’s in social work, began 20-plus years of public service with the people of Maine.
Melanie’s great energy and fabulous intelligence round out her qualities, along with just plain being nice. Join me in voting for Melanie Sachs on June 12.
