We am writing in support of Melanie Sachs in the upcoming Democratic primary for the Maine House of Representatives District 106. We think she will continue a legacy of active leadership set forth by departing Rep. David Webster. Melanie has worked in the private sector, with nonprofit groups and in state government to support public health for more than 20 years. She understands that programs that are currently being threatened by our governor are vital underpinnings for Mainers. It is “pound foolish” to eliminate reasonable regulation that protects our clean air, water and food. It is absurd to drop thousands of seniors and other vulnerable populations from cost-controlled primary health-care programs falling back upon more expensive emergency visits. We trust someone who has a proven track record of working collaboratively – who has demonstrated her valuable skills already. She will do well in Augusta.
