Van Wie: An impressive career


I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know Steve Rowe during the past year. I am impressed by his integrity, intelligence and compassion. He clearly has a passion for Maine’s economic future and for a quality education for all children.

He understands how investing in our economic infrastructure and early childhood care will pay big dividends to society for years to come. And he knows the reality of Maine’s budget and tax situation.

We need a governor with his skills and experience. He was highly respected as speaker of the House, and successfully represented Maine people as attorney general. After graduating from West Point, he had a successful business career before entering public service.

Other candidates may think that success in government or business alone qualifies them for being governor; well, not compared to Steve Rowe’s impressive career.

I am supporting Steve Rowe for governor.

Rep. David Van Wie, D-New Gloucester
