With great enthusiasm, I endorse Democrat Erik Jorgensen to represent House District 115 in the upcoming election.

In his public role as former director of the Maine Humanities Council and privately as a friend for many years, I know him to be acutely aware of the complex issues facing our community. As we welcome our new citizens from around the world, Erik’s creative capacities envision how these diverse cultures can enrich us.

Erik has decades of experience with literacy through reading, history and education, interwoven with a deep belief in the inherent strength of The Contemporary Family. This clearly makes Erik a unique candidate who would bring a mindful and discerning voice to the important issues facing Augusta.

How grateful I am to Erik for taking on this challenge of service for us. I know he will act for the inclusive benefit for all.
