Residents of state Senate District 30 (Scarborough, Buxton and Gorham) have an opportunity this November to vote for a Democratic candidate, Dr. Linda Sanborn, who has dedicated her life to helping others, first for 25 years as a family doctor and later by serving four terms as a state representative. I have spent many hours driving Linda around as she knocked on doors during each of her campaigns. Early on, I learned that I should always bring a book with me while Linda talked to voters; she often went well beyond the basic meet-and-greet approach, listening and discussing issues at length.
Linda is committed to improving access to health care and will work hard to implement the expansion of Mainecare. She will bring her years of experience as a doctor and in the Legislature to make Maine a place that recognizes the importance of medical care for all of our residents.
