When our Founding Fathers designed the American system of government, they envisioned experienced, intelligent citizens going to Washington and representing the various states.

The federal government works well only when lawmakers are able to process facts and translate information into legislation that is well reasoned, with the benefit of the wisdom that life experiences can develop.

Bruce Poliquin has been both a successful businessman and the most effective Maine State treasurer in decades. I worked with him as a banker and I know he worked diligently every day in the best interest of the citizens of Maine to safeguard the public funds entrusted to him.

He has real-world experience that people expect from a leader.

Bruce Poliquin will be a wonderful congressman, a breath of competent fresh air, representing Maine.
