I would like to express my support for Jean Marie Caterina for House District 126. We worked together as fellow town councilors for a number of years and several things stood out from that experience.

Jean Marie always starts her analysis of a problem with what is best for the community and its citizens. For example, her leadership in advancing the senior property tax credit was instrumental in its passage.

Jean Marie is a listener, a collaborator and a problem solver. She will work with you to reach solutions that take into account more than one point of view. The recent community survey she championed is just another example of these skills.

And last, she is an empathetic person who cares about people. I have always been amazed at how many of her constituents she personally knows and about whom she expresses a kind word.

Jean Marie will do us all proud in Augusta.
