Letter: Gideon will fight for Democrats' ideals

If, as a Democrat, you are looking for someone who will fight for the issues we care deeply about, I hope you will join me in voting for Sara Gideon in House District 106.

I am upset that Gov. LePage is calling hard-working state government employees “corrupt,” and blaming our economic woes on those in poverty. It is not enough to send a Democrat to Augusta, we need to send someone with a track record of getting results when championing core convictions. Through her community and public service, Sara Gideon has stood up for what is right, even when criticized for doing so. When Sara says, as our state representative, she will fight for marriage equality, economic fairness and uphold hard-fought environmental protections, I know we are in good hands.
