Letter: Bartlett backs Boyle in Senate District 6

Opinion

Letter: Bartlett backs Boyle in Senate District 6

As a small business owner, and as someone who works side-by-side with his five employees, Jim Boyle knows why economic growth matters in Maine, and why education matters, too. His view is that education helps Maine workers obtain better jobs and afford quality health care. And he knows that investing in education is important for Maine's businesses, because a skilled workforce helps all types of businesses grow and thrive.

Jim offers state Senate District 6 important expertise in small business development. Every bit as important, he has expertise and experience in building consensus and solving problems pragmatically. These skills are vital for success in Augusta. Jim has 30 years' experience getting things done in Maine. He'll do it as a state senator, too.

I encourage everyone to vote on Nov. 6. This is an important election. Jim is running to work hard in Augusta, not play politics. I have great confidence that he'll serve District 6 well.

Sen. Phil Bartlett
D-Gorham
