Letter: Woods' background is right for state Senate

It is with enthusiasm that I write this letter of support for Steve Woods in the state Senate District 25 Democratic primary. As a mother of three children who has spent the majority of her career in health care as a nurse/lawyer/administrator, I have seen that priorities like improved health care or education do not happen just because of passion; they happen because competent leaders do their homework, understand the climate, and have a firm grasp of the principles of economics.

During tough economic times, Steve was creating jobs and bringing money into Maine, and he did it in a forward-looking, environmentally friendly manner.

Steve has left a trail of success stories in his roles as a leader in business, local government, and the community. However, his greatest and most accomplished roles are that as a friend and family man.

Please join me in voting for Steve Woods.
