In the contentious political atmosphere that exists at present, it is difficult to find candidates who exemplify honesty, trustworthiness, empathy and bipartisanship. I have found that Ned Claxton is a candidate who displays all of those traits.

Claxton is a man of integrity. He will listen, deliberate and find solutions. He will work across the aisle to find compromises that are realistic and beneficial to his constituents’ issues. He is a person of his word and will work tirelessly for all Maine people.

In Senate District 20 (Auburn, Mechanic Falls, Minot, New Gloucester and Poland) there is an opportunity to elect an outstanding person to that state senate seat — Ned Claxton, on Nov. 6.
