I am writing to urge others to vote for Jan Dodge to represent Belfast, Northport and Waldo in House District 97. I spoke with Jan in Augusta a number of times during the 2019 legislative session when I was a citizen lobbyist for progressive legislation. In all cases her responses were positive, genuine and transparent. She leads with empathy and understanding rather than political calculation. I think this is exactly what we need in our legislature.
I know Jan has special interests in education, workers rights, and the opioid crisis but I trust her in general to act with integrity, humanity and judgement. I would vote for her in any case because she is a Democrat which means she understands that the role of our government is to serve and protect all of us, however my support for her goes well beyond partisanship.
If you are in House District 97 I hope you will join me in voting for Jan Dodge.
