Letter to the editor: Jan Dodge supports healthcare, public education

Wed, 09/12/2018 - 8:00am

    I am supporting Jan Dodge for House District 97 (Belfast, Waldo and Northport) because she is a strong advocate for education and health care for all. 

    Jan has been a frequent voice in Augusta advocating for improving public education.

    Jan is already known in the State House because of her years of experience working on the Maine Education Association Governmental Relations Committee. She can reach across the aisle to pass legislation to benefit the children of Maine.

    Working as a school nurse for the past 17 years, I have seen the inequities in health care for our children and families in Maine. Jan supports access to quality healthcare and believes it is a basic human right. I agree with her.

    For these reasons, I will vote for Jan Dodge on November 6th.
