Letter to the editor: Stanley ‘Paige’ Zeigler for District 96

Mon, 08/13/2018 - 9:45pm

 A few years ago I was campaigning, working very hard to win the seat for District 96 (Belmont, Lincolnville, Liberty, Morrill, Montville, Searsmont and Palermo) in Waldo County.  Now, two candidates  are running for my old seat.  One candidate I know is wandering throughout our towns, knocking on doors and meeting you, the voters of our district- that’s Stanley Paige Zeigler.  This is important.  As a Legislator you must have the pulse of the people of your district.  Coming to your door is one of the best ways to get to know you, the voter. 

 From my experience and my research into both candidates, there is clearly only ONE person that has the qualities, intelligence and experience for our votes.  That is Stanley Paige Zeigler.  

Paige has the education, experience, knowledge and honesty that we want in a Representative.

He is retired, but retired from 35 years of being a Captain in the Merchant Marine.  He has made tough decisions and had to stand by them.   He is a father and a husband.  He has worked in the logging industry and as a Licensed Ambulance Attendant.  He has shown community service by being on the School Board for RSU 3 as chairman and on town committees.  He has shown that he works for and cares about the people in his district by his ACTIONS and not just words. 

Mr Zeigler CAN represent both women and men and their concerns in Augusta.  

From what I have researched, Paige’s opponent lacks a firm handle on the many issues in which we address today.   Life is complicated in Augusta.  Working as a Representative means giving time, energy and taping into life’s experiences to help you make good, informed, educated decisions.  Mr Zeigler WILL represent all of us, with an open mind and with vast life experiences that will bring maturity and intelligence to the State House.  Having been in one term already means he will be working from day one as well!

Please vote for Stanley Paige Zeigler to be our Representative for a second term for District 96!
