The chaos in elections nationwide leaves many of us tired and frustrated.  However, our local Maine elections continue to offer voters excellent candidates to represent us in Augusta. One superior candidate is Jan Dodge, Maine House District #39.

In her first two terms, Jan achieved positive results for her constituents. Her work helped unemployed school staff, reduced the loss of pollinators to certain toxic insecticides, ensured that Mainers have access to competent and adequate legal counsel, addressed the impact of federal closures on Maine’s fishing industry, helped veterans get an increased property tax exemption, and more. Ultimately, she sponsored or passed over 20 bills revealing a depth and breadth of concern for her constituents.

For the first time in my life, I called a politician at home one June evening.  Expecting to listen to an answering machine, I was happily surprised when Jan answered the phone and responded to my concerns.  Please take a long look at Jan’s work and accomplishments available to see at and decide for yourself if she’s the representative for you.
