We are writing to urge readers to vote to make Sara Gideon our next United States Senator. Gideon is the daughter of immigrants and has been described as a smart and down-to-earth woman with a track record of getting things done.
We attended a recent online event for Gideon and were very impressed by what she said. Twelve years ago, when she first ran for the Freeport Town Council, Gideon said her goal was to overcome preconceived ideas by imagining solutions and hammering them out together. We could surely use someone with that attitude in Washington today!
Gideon’s years in Augusta, working under both Republican and Democratic administrations, certainly taught her how to succeed. She believes that we just need to ask more of ourselves, see each other as human beings, take on the challenges facing us, and use government positively to invest in ourselves. How great it is to support someone with such a positive attitude!
We believe that Susan Collins has tied herself to a failed administration in Washington and a national political party that only works for a small minority of Americans. We urge you to join us in voting for Sara Gideon to be our next United State Senator.
