Share or Comment

To the Editor;
State Senate District 4 candidate Sue Mackey Andrews (D-Dover-Foxcroft) has visited my community, and has invited me to participate in door to door visits in a number of towns. Citizens have raised many concerns during these events, and in each case, Sue has been an active and empathetic listener. She understands residents of her district to be vitally interested in the welfare of families and children, including worries about caring for aging family members, domestic abuse, intergenerational parenting and the devastating impact of addictions on our households and neighborhoods. The dignity of small towns and local communities is crucial to many who are hopeful to maintain local strengths, including participation in the education of their children, access to quality health care and services to people in need.

Sue Mackey Andrews has spent her entire career consulting with and overseeing important community projects. She has brought related issues to Augusta countless times, and she is eager to do so as our state senator. Most importantly, she has earned a reputation of respecting others and being respected, enabling her to collaborate with people with different points of view who share her goal of service to those she represents.

I heartily endorse the candidacy of Sue Mackey Andrews for State Senator District 4.
