We hear so much about the qualifications and experience of Janet Mills, Democratic candidate for governor. I want to point out that Janet is a deeply caring person.

I served with Janet in the Legislature and have seen her get elected and re-elected attorney general with support from legislators in both parties.

Janet was with me when my husband, Deane Jones, a legislator, was dying. She brought soup to him when he could no longer eat regular food. After my husband’s death, she supported me in my successful campaign for the Legislature.

Janet supported local small businesses and contributed to local charities, such as the hospital. On Christmas Eve, she’d visit the elderly in her community to make sure they were going to be OK for the holidays. She did all this while raising five children and serving in public office.

It’s time we elect as governor a highly qualified candidate with a heart.
