Rep. Patricia Hymanson, D-York, is running for re-election against former Rep. Bradley Moulton, a Republican from York.

The candidates are facing off the for the seat in Maine House District 4, which includes Ogunquit and parts of Sanford, Wells and York.

Hymanson, 59, is a neurologist and former school board chairwoman serving in her first term as a state representative. She said she has used her medical knowledge as a member of the Health and Human Services Committee.

“My work has been bipartisan, thoughtful, informed and diligent,” she said.

Hyman said she supports referendum proposals to expand background checks for gun purchases and raise the minimum wage to $12 an hour by 2020, but is undecided about whether to support legalization of recreational marijuana based on her work in health care.

Moulton, 64, is an attorney who served two terms in the Legislature, from 2004-06 and 2010-12.

He said his career in the law and public policy and his volunteer community service prepared him to serve in the Legislature.

“In two prior legislative terms I demonstrated an aptitude for working with stakeholders and crafting solutions, often with bipartisan participation,” he said.

Moulton opposes the referendum proposals to expand background checks for gun purchases, raise the minimum wage to $12 by 20120 and legalize the recreational use of marijuana.
