I enthusiastically support John Patrick for the state Senate.
He is a life-long resident of the area and has been a strong advocate for working men and women when serving in the House and as a member of the Citizens’ Trade Policy Commission.
As a 30-year mill worker at NewPage and former union president, he is one of the people and will work hard to keep the good jobs that are left while working on new resource-based opportunities.
He has been a Democrat throughout his career but is never shy about bucking leadership when it comes to issues of importance to his district.
No one will work harder for his constituents.
I hope others will join me in voting for John Patrick for Maine Senate on June 8.
