Eloise Vitelli has devoted her life to the promotion of the policies that are important to me and she has proved for 30 years that she can work with Democrats, Republicans, Independents and Greens in order to achieve results.

She was inducted into the Maine Women’s Hall of Fame because of her many successes in helping create policies and programs that affect all our lives. She is the person responsible for the New Ventures Program that supported Maine innovators as they hoped to begin their new businesses. She is the person who has long advocated for better access to job training, fairness for women in the workplace and so much more.

She doesn’t keep score, she just works day after day to make lives better for Maine people. And now she has put herself forward as a Senate candidate in District 19.

I will be happy to support Eloise Vitelli on Aug. 27.
