As a fellow teacher and colleague, I wholeheartedly support Jan Collins for the state Senate.

Maine needs people in government who understand the lessons of life experience, comprehend the full spectrum of Maine living and who work to find the best solutions.

Maine schools are cultural centers of rural communities. Funding quality education is a major issue that impacts all Mainers. Schools educate future citizens to become contributing workers and job creators who are essential to a healthy Maine economy. Young people must be prepared for the jobs of the future so that they can be local innovators who develop Maine’s potential, so that workers can remain here with good wages and rewarding jobs.

Collins’ greatest skills include her ability to listen, absorb information and find new approaches to old problems by working collaboratively with others.

I believe these abilities will translate perfectly to representing Maine people in the Legislature.
