Dr. Linda Sanborn is the Democratic primary candidate in Maine Senate District 30, which covers Gorham and parts of Buxton and Scarborough. Sanborn is an exceptional candidate with outstanding experience, and I am proud to support her.

A family physician for 25 years, Sanborn dedicated herself to the well-being of her patients while delivering many babies along the way. She championed those same values while serving in the Maine House of Representatives for four terms.

Sanborn pushed back hard against Gov. Paul LePage’s proposed cuts to revenue sharing with local government and fought for increased school funding. She supports increased access to health insurance for Maine people, and her credibility on the subject, as a medical doctor, is unimpeachable.

Many difficult issues now face Maine, and we must have experienced, reasonable, and collaborative elected leaders to address them. Sanborn fits that bill perfectly.
