On June 10, voters can support Chellie Pingree in the 1st Congressional District primary. Her priorities include promptly ending the Iraq war and redirecting the hundreds of millions of dollars spent every day there toward creating U.S. jobs.

She supports a universal healthcare system; rising insurance premiums remain a huge strain on businesses.

She is a small business owner who grew North Islands Design Company with 10 employees, selling products to 1,200 stores and 100,000 mail-order catalogues nationwide. Today, she is a partner in a local inn and restaurant business on North Haven, helping grow the local economy.

As a state senator, she put her business experience to work, promoting economic development and sound fiscal policies. I know how effective she is in getting things done on issues that matter to us and our country.

Chellie is the right person to work for us in Washington.
