Maine needs more people like Berwick’s Joshua Plante standing up for them in Augusta. He’s an idealistic, hardworking, well-informed young man who cares deeply for Maine’s citizens.

Like you, he’s tired of partisan bickering and committed to a kinder, gentler approach to political debate. He wants to be rid of the mean-spirited rhetoric that has stained Maine’s once-stellar reputation and made us the laughingstock of the nation on all too many occasions.

Want more civility in Augusta? Vote for Democrat Joshua Plante to represent District 5 (Berwick and part of North Berwick) in the Maine House.
