Ned Claxton was always seen as a calm, mature, steadying hand when I had to call him. I work in an emergency department and they can be busy, hectic places. Whether in dealing with our staff or at the patient bedside, Dr. Claxton could always be seen as an advocate for the patient. No hidden agendas, no loud angry outbursts — just the right thing, done the right way.

The Maine Legislature, at times, also seems to be a busy and hectic place. And sometimes there is a lot of dysfunction. I support Ned Claxton for the Maine state Senate because I believe he will bring a mature “bedside” manner to Augusta.
