Let’s keep Jan Dodge on the job

Jan Dodge is running for re-election in House District #97 Belfast, Northport and Waldo. During the previous legislative session Jan worked tirelessly for us. When she is re-elected she certainly will continue in those efforts. I wholeheartedly support Jan as our representative for many reasons, her intellect, work ethic and energy to name just a few.

But above all I admire her approach to legislation, in her view a good idea is a good idea regardless of which side of the aisle it comes from. I’ll give you two examples. LD 128 from Rep. Will Tuell (R) East Machias supporting the Downeast Correctional Facility and LD 160 from Sen. Matt Pouliot (R) Augusta to add personal finance to the Maine Learning Results were both co-sponsored by Jan. I think most people would agree that teenagers being more knowledgeable about personal financial decisions is a good idea. 

Jan is a great person to reflect our beliefs in Augusta who supports a variety of issues such as education, the environment, women's rights, labor and social justice. She has been endorsed by the Maine Education Association as well as the Maine AFL-CIO. She has a 100% voting record with the following organizations:
Maine Conservation Voters
Planned Parenthood 
Maine Woman’s Lobby
Maine State Employees Association 
Democracy Maine
The League of Women Voters
Maine Citizens for Clean Elections 
Maine People’s Alliance
Please join me in voting for Representative Jan Dodge. Let’s keep her on the job.
