Boy, it sure doesn’t feel like two years have gone by since I wrote my last Letter to the Editor, but it has.  Paige Zeigler has been your Representative now for two terms (the last four years) and he has done a great job. I held this seat once, and was disappointed I couldn’t run again, but I was happy to know that some of the hard work I put in would be continued by Paige. 

He works diligently on issues concerning the environment and education.  He was successful in passing a bill to cut down on an environmental pollutant that I originally submitted.    

He is concerned about Mainer’s access to healthcare and our aging population.  Paige worked hard on a bill that helped individuals get insurance coverage for hearing aids. 

Paige has great life experiences, an education and qualities that we need as a legislator.   He also listens.  He has been a Captain in the Merchant Marine, he is a father, husband, he has been a  licensed ambulance attendant as well.  He has shown his dedication to community service by being on the School Board and town committees even when he was working as a legislator.  He gives his time and his service to others.  Not that many people in public office are that dedicated.  

Paige can represent us all.  He has an open mind, vast experiences in leadership, maturity and intelligence.  All this is needed in a Representative in the State House. 

I ask you to vote for Stanley Paige Zeigler this November.

Christine Burstein lives in Lincolnville
