As a former legislator in the opposing party, I have great admiration for Margaret (Peggy) Rotundo, candidate for state Senate District 21.

We worked for eight years together on the Legislature’s Joint Standing Committee on Appropriations and Financial Affairs. Assuredly, we differed on many of the policy areas which we were charged with funding. Yet, each of these areas — for instance, human services or education — had critical needs, and it was important for our committee to overcomes differences and find the best solutions for our colleagues in the full Legislature to approve.

Peggy worked hard with committee members of both parties to forge solutions. Fortunately for us, we also had strong committee members who brought good ideas forward.

Peggy’s respectful leadership facilitated good outcomes. She’s an experienced and caring leader who would keep Maine moving forward.
