Candidate has what it takes on and off the field

To the editor:

I would like to take this opportunity to voice my strong support for Roger Bishop in the upcoming election for District 123. I have known Roger for a number of years now and I feel he would be our best choice to represent the district in Augusta.

Roger is an experienced professional and is genuinely interested in being an independent voice in Augusta that is sorely needed. I feel he will be an excellent communicator and has earned a solid reputation in the community as a former executive at Fairchild and more recently a Cape Elizabeth Little League umpire. As an umpire in Cape Elizabeth, in his own way, he has given a great deal of himself each season for the benefit of others. As a Little League board member and parent of players in the league, it was always reassuring to know that Roger would unselfishly be available to umpire many games during the season, to keep the season running smoothly for the kids. Often, I would see Roger’s demeanor on the field – confident, fair and always willing to help out a young player who needed an extra hand. I imagine those are also excellent qualities for those who represent us in August and who we hope have our best interests in mind. More importantly, though, his professional career provides the organizational and creative thinking skills that we look for as constituents.

Please join me in supporting Roger for state representative of District 123.
