Letter: Re-elect Nelson as Falmouth representative

Please add my voice to those endorsing the re-election of Rep. Mary Nelson to the Maine House of Representatives in District 112.

It is hard to imagine a person better equipped to bring the needs of Falmouth’s citizens to the House. Whether her topic is the economy, the environment, or education, she speaks with knowledge and authority. Her achievements in the House over the last four years are notable, as is her ability to work “across the aisle.” Mary actually practices the bipartisanship of which so many only preach.

As the mother of three children who attended Falmouth schools, I am most grateful for her work in education. Her sponsorship of bills on toxin-free schools, anti-bullying, and teacher education have made a difference for students here and across the state.

And she has lived in Falmouth for decades. Please join Bob, me and our kids in voting for your neighbor, Mary Nelson.
