I grew up in Bethel at a time when people couldn’t make a living in the town. The logging and farming industries had all but died. My father owned a successful construction company, but he commuted out of town every day to have work.
With his vision and action at Sunday River, Les Otten radically changed Bethel. Now, folks can earn a living in Bethel. Businesses of all kinds are successful in Bethel. And the jobs created are not just at Sunday River, but throughout the Route 26 corridor to Sunday River.
I support Otten for governor. I believe in the same ideals as he does: smaller government, more jobs and government accountability. I also support his candidacy because I know he will be able to deliver on his vision for Maine.
I hope others join me in actively supporting his candidacy.
