Representative is ‘strong,’ ‘focused’

To the editor:

Maine faces tough economic challenges that demand strong, focused and responsible leadership. Rep. Terry Morrison has shown such leadership during his legislative service in the Maine House, and will continue to use his valuable experience on behalf of Maine citizens in his district and throughout the state.

Terry is an effective legislator and a strong advocate for fair tax policy, excellence in education, economic development and protection of Maine’s environmental laws and natural resources. He led a successful effort to sponsor and pass a much-needed anti-bullying bill, sending a strong message to students and parents that bullying in schools will not be tolerated. Terry is committed to fairness and supports a fair -share economy, where all Mainers pay their fair share, and to a fair distribution of education funding to ensure educational opportunities for Maine children. He continues to be a strong advocate for keeping Maine’s environmental protections secure, earning him a 100 percent lifetime rating from Maine Conservation Voters. Rep. Morrison remains committed to protecting civil rights, strengthening our educational system, creating jobs and rebuilding Maine’s economy.

Terry has proven he can bring people together and find solutions that will serve Maine people and protect our children and environment. Please join me and re-elect Terry Morrison for state representative – responsible and effective leadership committed to ensure a strong future for Maine.
