I am grateful that Bettyann Sheats is running for Maine state Senate.

Having served two terms in the House, she understands that running for office is vital to keep our democracy functioning for the benefit of us all.

Bettyann has been my neighbor for the last two years, warmly welcoming me to this community. I’ve walked with her in the rain to look at road drainage issues which affected places down the road, not hers, and watched her and her husband clear away debris from the December storm. When I had COVID, Bettyann brought us a casserole.

What do such little things matter? They show Bettyann’s interest in the well-being of others, her work ethic, and her values. She knows what’s involved with campaigning and the office itself, and is stepping forward again.

She has my vote. If people examine her record, I believe she will earn their vote, too.

Silver Moore-Leamon, Auburn
