Gil Harris raises important points about there being no room for hate in Maine in his Aug. 9 letter supporting the Green presidential nominee.

Dr. Jill Stein of the Green Party offers a positive, uplifting alternative for Mainers looking toward a future for the greater good. She promotes a Green New Deal that would provide full employment while at the same time saving billions of dollars by tackling the cause of illnesses such as asthma and transitioning us to a 100 percent renewable energy future.

There are many reasons to vote for Dr. Stein. And as a student at Maine’s medical school, I have to support the only candidate who will make true health care rather than sick care a right, and that is Dr. Jill Stein.
