I am writing to join the chorus of Falmouth voters who support Mark Richard’s candidacy for a seat in the Maine House. I first got to know Mark from meetings of the Falmouth Republican Town Committee. There he offered thoughtful and insightful input to topics under discussion. He does not rush to judgment. Rather, he looks at an issue and asks probing questions in order to make a decision regarding the best way to proceed. And that is why I want Mark to represent me in Augusta.

Take a look at his website, markrichard.org. There he outlines his position on several key issues including his pro-business stance and eliminating wasteful and inefficient spending. But my personal favorite is his pledge to work to give Mainers opportunities for competitive health insurance by allowing access across state borders. Sending Mark to Augusta will help move us in a positive direction.
