Letter: Women's issues resonate with Breen

I support Democrat Cathy Breen’s candidacy for state Senate.

For me, her views on women’s issues are critical. She supports equal pay for equal work, affordable health care for women, and a women’s right to choose – basic women's rights.

Her past experience working with survivors of domestic abuse also will bring a much-needed perspective in Augusta. We need a senator with Cathy’s leadership capabilities to articulate the importance of these issues for women.

Based on her six years as Falmouth town councilor, two of them as chairwoman, and her experience on nonprofit boards, it is clear Breen is intelligent, hardworking and collaborative. Please join me in supporting Breen in Senate District 25.
