Compassion, concern, and vision
To the Editor:
As a former County Commissioner from Oxford County and employee of Sunday River Ski Resort and American Skiing Company, I truly believe that the vision and plan that Les Otten has for the state of Maine are exactly what the state needs.
In the 17 years that I have known Les Otten, he has always believed in the state and the potential for its residents, as well as the ability for Maine to be a leader as opposed to a laggard.
My departure from Maine as a full-time resident was precipitated by the exact things that Les is looking to correct — lack of job opportunity and an unreasonable cost of living.
There is another side to Mr. Otten that most people are not familiar with. During a most trying period in my 20s, Les truly showed his belief and compassion for me and my family as individuals. This compassion and concern is something that he shares for each and every individual in the state.
In an era where compassion and character are paramount with our public officials, Les is a leader. He truly cares about the residents of the state and their well-being.
Les’ jobs plan and his true compassion and caring for individuals make Les the right person at the right time for Maine. I encourage you to go out and support Les Otten for governor. He is a man with vision and will include everyone in the ideals of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.
