I first met Cynthia Dill when we served together on the Cape Elizabeth Town Council. Cynthia impressed me then with her quick grasp of issues and her ability to skillfully sift and sort facts, debate calmly, and cast her vote based on what she believed was in the best interest of the town. This year, Cynthia will have completed six years of service in Augusta – four as a state representative and two as a state senator. On several occasions over the last two years I have made presentations to the Legislature’s Judiciary Committee, of which Cynthia is a member. 

Cynthia has consistently proved herself to be a progressive, non-partisan thinker and is the ideal candidate to succeed Sen. Olympia Snowe in the U.S. Senate. As a matter of historic coincidence, this year Cynthia will be same age that Olympia was when she was first elected to the U.S. Senate.
