Kristen Cloutier has been a tireless advocate for Lewiston.

Her commitment to public service, and the people she represents, has been demonstrated locally as City Council representative (Ward 5), president and mayor, and at the state level as the representative from House District 60 (with redistricting, now 94).

In her first term, Kristen sponsored a number of common sense legislative efforts. One that I am most grateful for is the Family Caregiver Grant program, which helps family members with costs of caring for loved ones at home.  This would have been so very helpful when I was a long-term caregiver for both my parents.

In her attention to this and other programs that support paid family leave, tobacco cessation, emergency shelter for the homeless, schools, remediation of lead paint, and integration of immigrants, we are well served.

I urge that Kristen be re-elected to serve us in Augusta.

Klara Tammany, Lewiston
