Letter to the editor: Jayne Crosby Giles for small business

Mon, 10/08/2018 - 3:45pm

As the owner of the Lupine Cottage Craft Co-Op in Belfast, I’m writing with wholehearted support for Jayne Crosby Giles for Maine State Senate. The Lupine Cottage was my dream. Jayne believed in me. When I first started out, I was faced with many obstacles as a small business owner. Jayne took the time to listen and understood my issues and concerns. Her banking and business experience was invaluable. She went the extra mile and found the resources I needed to succeed. She was always looking ahead and willing to do more to ensure she found me the best answer to my needs. 

Jayne continues to visit my shop and make sure everything is going well. She is genuinely concerned about the members of the community and business in Maine. Her help ensured my success and that gives a chance for success to over 60 individual small business members of the Lupine Cottage.  She was a huge asset to me and I know she will be an asset for Waldo County and the State of Maine.
