As an independent Rumford voter, I have looked for "independent-thinking" candidates within the Democratic and Republican parties. It’s difficult for voters to determine just how a candidate’s stated positions will support the need to move our state forward after 30 years of economic decline.
I have decided to support two politically independent-thinking candidates. Their party affiliation has less to do with my decision than the fact that they are committed to the values I share.
I believe Paul LePage and Sawin Millett will drive for the necessary changes in Augusta to cut wasteful spending, lower taxes and bring new prosperity to the state. Their individual and collective experiences in business and financial matters have prepared them for the challenge.
I hope others will join me in voting for Paul LePage and Sawin Millett in November.
