Letter writer has known candidate for years

To the editor:

I have known Rebecca Millett since our play-date days when our now high school seniors were babies. We would discuss education and the environment while our children played on the living room floor. She’s always had a passion for justice and equality. I have followed Rebecca’s career in the Senate these past four years and am so thankful for the enthusiasm, expertise and grit that she has poured into these important issues.

Rebecca has devoted herself to improving education in all parts of Maine so that every child has access to quality schools – regardless of their family’s income or geography. Her tireless advocacy and hard work earned her the 2016 Maine Friend of Education award from the MEA.

Rebecca’s focus on preserving the environment will help Maine retain its natural beauty for future generations, a responsibility we all share. In her words, “I believe clean energy is critical in our efforts to fight climate change, so it was hard to see the solar bill defeated this year. This issue is far from settled, and I will continue fighting for sustainable energy and jobs.”

If you value improving our education system at every level and protecting Maine’s diverse and stunning natural resources, please join me in voting for Rebecca Millett for state Senate.
