Chip Curry understands the importance of education, health care, and jobs

I am voting for Chip Curry to represent all of Waldo County in the Maine State Senate and writing to urge others to do so too.

Over the last few decades, Chip has lived in Knox, Unity, and Belfast, giving him personal knowledge and connection to a variety of Waldo County communities. He knows our county and he’s focused on solutions to help its residents.

Since 1975, I have worked to protect the nature of the Maine I love. I think Chip Curry is the best candidate to protect our natural resources, outdoor heritage, and climate future. That’s why Maine Conservation Voters endorsed Chip too.

Chip Curry recognizes that while Maine doesn’t have any oil wells, our state is blessed with vast untapped renewable energy resources. He wants to get them to work for us. Harnessing clean renewable energy like solar will boost local jobs, keep billions more dollars in our state’s economy, and help us do our part to combat climate change. This will help Waldo county residents in the near term, and help protect future generations from the worst impacts of climate change.

While our natural resources hold a special place in my heart, I’m also thrilled that Chip Curry understands the importance of education, health care, and jobs, and he’s committed to improving access to higher speed Internet. This will help our businesses, improve educational and healthcare opportunities and offer much-needed connection to teens, seniors and others isolated by this terrible pandemic.

In short, vote Curry!
