We have been pleased to support Democratic Rep. Janice Cooper as our state representative. She has represented our district with distinction.

Janice has been a fearless and effective advocate in supporting environmental and health legislation, among other issues. For example, she helped usher through a bill that will greatly expand the number of compatible donors for bone marrow transplants.

She succeeded in thwarting efforts to rules that would allow strip mining in Maine’s pristine mountains unless and until environmental and fiscal standards ensure that our most precious resource – the beauty of our state – is not destroyed and taxpayers are not left to clean up the mess.

We are proud to vote on Nov. 4 to re-elect Janice Cooper.
