Start change by sending Contreni to Augusta

To the Editor;

American institutions have taken a beating in recent years. Internationally we have lost our standing in NATO, abandoned our partners  in the Trans Pacific Partnership and walked away from the Paris Climate  Agreement. Here at home the ACA has been denied by Gov. LePage and  constantly attacked by the Trump administration, all while the opioid epidemic and now the COViD-19 pandemic have spread through Maine. To  correct this course, we need a change in leadership from the local level to  the nation’s capital.

Nov. 3 is a chance to put new people into office. While the  races in Washington may be decided by record-setting PAC contributions, Maine voters are fully in control of whom they send to Augusta. District  119 has seemed to support the disastrous LePage and Trump legacy, but it’s  time for a change. Vote for Margarita Contreni. She’ll take a common  sense position on the alternative energy options that LePage blocked. She’ll support policies that ease our current health crisis. As a local business woman from Greenville, she’ll seek policies that help our future  economy, and not cling to the traditions of the past. Send a message that enough is enough, and start by sending Margarita Contreni to Augusta.
