Candidate will listen

To the editor:

I’m writing to support state legislative candidate Richard Rottkov of South Portland in the June 12 primary election. Richard, a lifelong Democrat, is ready to represent District 32 in the statehouse. Over many years I’ve come to know him as a deeply dedicated member of our South Portland community.

Richard is a thoughtful listener and a committed consensus builder. He’s volunteered for numerous roles both within and beyond our local Democratic committee. He’s helped many Democrats get elected to the state House and Senate; he’s tirelessly supported progressive issues including universal health care, a system of taxation that’s fair to the poor and the middle class, and enhanced stewardship of the environment as a leader of the South Portland Land Trust.

He also understands the educational needs of our children, having worked at South Portland High School and Southern Maine Community College over 15 years. Richard Rottkov will make a terrific Representative in Augusta for South Portland and Cape Elizabeth.

John McCall South Portland
