As a Mainer who is tired of expensive health insurance premiums and diminished coverage, I write in support of Gay Grant, Democratic candidate for House District 59.

After an unexpected medical crisis in April, I have struggled to pay my premiums and the expenses not covered by insurance.

Grant is a mother, wife and business owner who understands that health care costs are a growing burden on working families.

She believes that everyone deserves access to a doctor and that quality health care is a fundamental right.

Grant will fight to make health care more affordable, ensure that seniors have access to Medicare benefits and affordable prescription drugs, and fight to lower insurance premiums.

Gardiner and Randolph need a champion in the Legislature who will fight for their best interest. That’s why I am voting for Grant for on Nov. 6.
