I am writing in support of Democrat Jean-Marie Caterina for Maine Senate District 30.

Jean-Marie is a former teacher and social worker who has dedicated her life to helping others succeed.

As a small-business owner, she believes that small businesses are the backbone of our economy. She’ll help create high-quality job opportunities that keep our young people in Maine.

Jean-Marie believes that investing in Maine’s public education system at all levels will create the best opportunities for our children and our economy. As a town councilor, she led the fight against unfair increases in property taxes. Jean-Marie will also fight to protect a woman’s right to make her own health care decisions.

Jean-Marie will use her experience to bring common-sense solutions to Augusta. She will serve the needs of the communities that she represents, not a partisan agenda. Please join me in voting for Jean-Marie Caterina on Nov. 8.
