As the November election campaign comes to an end, I would like to thank the many residents of Yarmouth, Chebeague Island and Long Island whom I visited this summer and fall. Their kindness and interest in the issues facing Maine was so encouraging. Without exception, as I “did doors,” I was met with a smile and often a wide-open door. Even the dogs were welcoming. Questions were well-informed and sincere. This trust and sense of community are what make Maine such an exceptional place to live and work. While I hope I have earned the support of residents of House District 47 for re-election to the Maine House, no matter who wins, it will be an honor to serve you.

Rep. Janice Cooper
