Medical problems should never be the reason families suffer financial hardships, yet they too frequently are.

As an advocate for Maine people, Charlie Dingman has worked to make health care affordable and has a humane and constructive attitude toward providing assistance to families in need.

Maine needs representatives such as him in Augusta, who have the know-how and experience to change how Maine finances health care, how families of all income levels are supported to access medical services, and how health care policy can be changed to benefit the people of Maine.

If Maine is not successful in that, there will be a high price to pay.

Charlie Dingman will help me work toward a more effective health care policy for all Maine citizens, but he needs public support from the voters of Leeds, Turner and Livermore.

I shall be voting for him on Nov. 4.

Elaine Buckley, Leeds
