In Linda Anthony’s letter (Oct. 1), she stated, “Quint is said to be running against Mason because he is too young to be a senator.”

I met Garrett Mason and believe someday he may have the knowledge to help solve the challenges facing Maine government and public education. Today, however, Maine needs representatives who understand how government and public education should function.

Colleen Quint is that person. She was executive director of the Mitchell Institute, served as vice chair of the Maine Compact for Higher Education, was president of the board of the National Scholarship Providers Association, and currently serves on the board of the Harold Alfond College Challenge.

On the local level, she serves on the school and the budget committees in the town of Minot.

The Maine Education Association supports Colleen Quint. I do too.
