I have been a public prosecutor for 25 years. I have dealt with many different politicians during this time, and not one of them has impressed me like Steven Rowe.

I worked closely with Attorney General Steven Rowe during my first six years as Kennebec County District Attorney. During this time, Rowe impressed me with his leadership on issues such as domestic violence and sexual assault, and his integrity and courage to tackle the tough, seemingly intractable problems.

He does the right thing for the right reason and is as honest as the day is long. This is why I hope that he becomes our next governor.
