It is with great pleasure that I write to support Jon Gale for Cumberland County district attorney in the Democratic primary June 12.

I’ve known Jon for 15 years. Our children attended Portland Public Schools together. Our friendship began as parent volunteers, and over the years he has become a close and trusted friend.

Jon is intelligent, progressive and passionate and will bring reform to criminal justice in Maine. I know him to be a great communicator and thoughtful debater.

Jon is an asset to our community, and I believe his extensive experience as a defense attorney and prosecutor make him the ideal candidate to serve as district attorney for Cumberland County. Please join me in supporting Jon Gale in the Democratic primary.
