I want to remind the voters of Maine that each of us is directly impacted by the individual we elect to lead us.

I believe that Eliot Cutler displays the ethics, experience and energy needed. He recognizes how vital it is for Maine to move forward in education, talent recruitment and implementation of planning to grow economically, and to achieve the potential quality of life in this wonderful state in which we live.

Maine is unique in its natural resources. Cutler has the vision to maximize this strength.

Cutler is running as an independent, not as an arm of a party that is beholden to special interests. He has the proven ability to work with both sides and not just to protect the status quo.

This election is about the skills of the candidate. Please consider carefully the opportunity to move Maine forward with this outstanding candidate.
