St. Clair for Congress

To the Editor;
Despite having reached out to him numerous times over the past 16 months, Rep. Bruce Poliquin has failed to represent me in Washington, D.C. I will be supporting Lucas St.Clair to take his seat.

First, St. Clair was born in Dover-Foxcroft, and he has deep roots in Maine. Next, he has shown his ability to work with people to get things done. His successful work in Maine and in Washington has brought the Katahdin Woods and Waters National Monument into reality, despite Poliquin’s opposition to it. The economic benefits are already being felt in the region.

St. Clair visited Dexter, and I watched him listen attentively to the details of the work done at the MaineSole shoe company. He understands the problems of the 2nd Congressional District, and he wants to help.

It frightens me to watch what is happening in Washington: the future of health care is in question; the environment is taking a backseat to corporate interests; and there are still no sensible gun policies. All this, and we have a representative in Congress who has sat back and watched it happen. We deserve better.

I am confident that if St. Clair is elected to Congress, my views and the views of residents across the state will be properly represented. Let’s have a real Mainer representing Maine.
