We strongly support the re-election of Rep. Janice Cooper, D-Yarmouth, in House District 47. Janice understands that good government is an effective government. She has been an extraordinary public servant, and a friend to us all, working tirelessly on our behalf and displaying an uncommon openness in the process. We know where Janice stands on tough issues and we know she has our back when it comes to supporting the interests of Yarmouth, and the state. During her first term, she has stood firm on politically volatile issues and has spoken passionately on statewide issues in favor of rationale environmental laws to protect our lakes, rivers and streams, while supporting businesses and being dedicated to the well-being of the people who live and work in her district and in Maine.

Our community needs an intelligent, dedicated advocate in the Legislature. Janice is this person.
