I am a member of Indivisible Sagadahoc, a group that came together to express our concerns with the election of Donald Trump as president of our unique and majestic country.

We are concerned about many of his dangerous policies and pronouncements and the inherent damage they pose.

Additionally, we are constituents of Sen. Susan Collins, who has refused to hold a town hall.

The senator has been assured that civil and respectful discourse will be guaranteed during our town hall. Our wonderful state of Maine has a long history of town halls, where voices of its citizens can be heard in a free and open society.

We strongly urge Sen. Collins, who has been touted as nonpartisan and open to free and respectful discourse, to grant her constituents this opportunity, as many other elected officials have done. By the way, Mainers have sent Sen. Collins to Washington for the past 20 years (since 1997).

As a professional therapist for more than 25 years, I have been a proponent of human communication as a way to bridge divisions and to solve our differences.

Please, Sen. Collins, hear our voices.
