A few years ago, people heard a lot about the importance of small businesses to the state’s economy. For those people working in small businesses, decisions made in Augusta are very important.

Through the past two administrations, my small business has greatly appreciated the work of Rep. Michael Beaulieu. He has proved his support for Maine’s smaller employers.

I am confident that if people have a business concern, they can turn to Rep. Beaulieu to ensure that their voice is heard in Augusta.

His background as an educator in Maine’s public school system has given him a unique perspective on the programs that ensure that younger citizens are prepared to enter the work force, meaning that businesses such as mine can find qualified job applicants locally.

More jobs and trained employees? Sounds like a nice place to live, and thanks to Rep. Mike Beaulieu, this area will continue to improve.
