I am writing to support Bob Kirchherr for House District 73, representing Paris, Buckfield and Hebron.
Kirchherr is, without question, highly qualified to serve as a representative. He is a retired educator with 30 years of experience, teaching at SAD 17 and Central Maine Community College, where he was associate dean and a founder of the Oxford Hills Higher Education Initiative.
He recently served for eight years on the Paris Planning Board and selectboard. As a representative, he would continue advocating for education funding, economic development and property tax relief.
He has strong leadership skills and a professional and calm demeanor under contentious circumstances, as shown while he was chairman of the Paris Selectboard. He listened to all points of view and encouraged the examination of issues without anger and confrontation.
Those skills would serve him and his constituents well in the Legislature.
I support Bob Kirchherr for House District 73.
Nancy Perham, South Paris
