Letter to the editor: Let’s send Paula Sutton back to Augusta

Sun, 09/23/2018 - 7:15pm

I write this letter in support of Paula Sutton as I think she has been an effective legislator in Augusta for the people of Warren, Appleton, Hope and East Union. 

I think she shows a diverse and extensive business background, which coupled with her volunteer experience, gives her a unique perspective and viewpoint. Paula understands the daily challenges that my wife and I face running our business while empathizing with the needs and concerns of our employees. 

I first met Paula when she presented our business with a legislative sentiment for our work within the Union community and was struck with her energy, positive attitude and obvious love for the people of Maine. Additionally, I admire and appreciate her willingness to update her constituents regularly on events in Augusta and how she consistently makes herself available to answer questions. 

Paula Sutton has done an outstanding job representing the people of the Mid-Coast and as a business owner, I will echo the recent endorsements she has received from the Association of Maine Realtors, Maine Credit Unions and the Sportsmen’s Alliance of Maine.  Let’s get behind Paula Sutton and send her back to Augusta.
