On Nov. 4, my family and I will be voting for Anne Graham for state representative in House District 46 (Durham, Pownal and North Yarmouth).

As a former legislator, I know what it takes to get things done in Augusta. Graham is accessible, engaged, experienced and has consistently shown strong leadership skills. She connects with those she represents.

These are challenging times for Maine. She has the right mix of experience and skills. She understands that government needs to work for everyone. She works across the aisle and has a proven track record of public service.

She will ensure that Durham, Pownal and North Yarmouth have a strong and effective voice in Augusta on issues such as revenue sharing, welfare reform, job creation, property tax reform and making the school funding formula fair.

I will be voting for Anne Graham on Nov. 4.

Mike Fitzpatrick, Durham
