Rep. Stearns looks forward to serving

To The Editor;

I would like to thank every person in Maine Legislative House District #119 that exercised their right to vote in the recent election. A tip of the cap also to all of the candidates from the region who were willing to run for office. Each is to be commended for stepping forward.

Our municipal clerks and their volunteer teams of poll workers deserve high praise for their work. It takes a lot to put on an election from start to finish. Toss in the unique challenges created by the pandemic, as well as record voter turnout and it makes their level of professionalism even more incredible.

It will be an honor to serve in the 130th Maine Legislature. The challenges will be formidable. Where and how will we safely convene to do the work of the people? How will we meet the budgetary challenges? How will rural Maine fare when the vast majority of lawmakers are from southern parts of the state and more urban areas? Positive answers to these questions will rest on the ability of people and parties to work together.

If you have questions or concerns my email address is paul.stearns@legislature.maine.gov and my cell number is 207-343-2615.

Rep. Paul Stearns
