Letter: Alfond urges support for Boyle in Senate District 6

There's a great small business owner in District 6 who's running for state Senate. His name is Jim Boyle, and he'll bring job creation expertise to our state Legislature like only a small business owner can.

Jim and I both own small businesses. We know first-hand why economic growth matters. We know first-hand why education matters, too. A highly-skilled workforce helps Maine businesses grow and thrive.

Jim is also running to be a consensus builder. He's got the real-world experience to do this. He's worked with loggers, landowners, and mill operators. He's worked with developers, land trusts, and regulators. Just as he's been an excellent small business owner and job creator, he'll be a great public servant for District 6, too.

I encourage everyone to get out and vote on Nov. 6.

State Sen. Justin Alfond
Portland
