On June 12, voters will have the opportunity to vote for the next prospective governor and member of Congress.

As a U.S. Marine veteran, Jared Golden has a “can do” attitude, as well as the understanding that all Mainers need to be represented, not just the ones with deep pockets

Mark Eves, through his political and personal experiences, has shown he has the ability and willingness to move Maine forward in these times of extreme polarization. He knows how to work across the aisle, but also can keep an open mind on so many of issues we Mainers are concerned about today.

When people cast their votes in the June 12 primaries, I hope others will join me in voting for those two outstanding gentlemen. Maine needs leaders who lead and not those who wish to lay blame with no real solutions at hand.
