It has been a tremendous pleasure working with state Rep. Steve Wood from Sabattus during the past four years in Augusta.
His strength is his independent nature. He does not follow party line, regardless of the issue. In fact, on several occasions he has mentioned hearing from the citizens of his district and it was their opinions that guided his vote.
Too often, as members of a party, it is easier to vote with the herd, especially on the tough issues that are often polarizing and divisive. However, Wood has stood firm is his commitment to represent the people of his district, not his political party.
Voters in his district should continue to support Steve Wood as their representative; he truly has been a strong advocate for his district in Augusta.
