To the Editor:
We are fortunate that John Patrick is running for Maine Senate District 14. John's candidacy affords us the opportunity to elect a proven advocate for working men and women who has stood up for public education in difficult times, and has compassionately and effectively served as a tenacious advocate for under-supported veterans.
A career papermaker, John has stood firm in protecting our state's natural resources while facilitating vigorous support of key local industries.
Earning a 100-percent rating from the Sportsman's Alliance of Maine highlights John Patrick's commitment to the protection of forest and outdoor legacies that are our present and future here in Maine.
Endorsements from MEA and the state workers union attest to Mr. Patrick's commitment to fair treatment of all working people. This is an essential value to send to the State House to assure that the long-term interests of our state and citizens are thoughtfully and justly considered and protected as we face the realities of constrained budgets. John Patrick has demonstrated objectivity, persistence and passionate commitment to his constituents. Please join me in voting for John Patrick for State Senate.
