Letter: Re-elect Graham in House District 109

Please support Rep. Anne Graham in House District 109. In her first term, Anne has demonstrated that she is a fair-minded and principled moderate, receiving bipartisan support for the four bills she sponsored. All were passed by the House and Senate, three unanimously, and two became law. In addition to Anne's sensible, centrist approach, she has also shown compassion for Maine's most vulnerable citizens. Last winter, when the governor proposed cutting personal care assistance to severely disabled Mainers, I prepared remarks and was ready to speak before the Appropriations Committee. I could not attend the hearing, but sent Anne a copy of my testimony. At the hearing, Rep. Graham acted as my advocate, giving voice to my words, entering my statement into the public record. She stood up for me then; now, I urge the voters of District 109 to stand up for her and re-elect Anne Graham.
