Three adjectives come to mind when I think of my state representative Christina Riley — independent, articulate and kind-hearted.

As a legislator, she seeks bipartisan sponsorship of her bills and always looks to find common ground when engaging in debate.

I have never witnessed her shy away from stating her honest opinion, even if her views may be inconsistent with the position taken by her party’s leadership or the constituent she is engaging with.

She is extraordinarily authentic. Furthermore, her determination to make herself visible and available to constituents best represents her passion and care for her community.

In a political climate full of unyielding partisanship and utter despondency, Riley is the breath of fresh air residents desperately need representing them in Augusta.

On Nov. 6, I hope voters of House District 74 (Jay, Livermore and Livermore Falls) will join me in voting for Christina “Tina” Riley.

Trevor Doiron, Jay
