First, we need to set the record straight: We are not relatives of either Patsy Crockett or Bob Crockett.

That said, we believe we need to elect Democrat Patsy Crockett to the state Legislature.

Her experience from serving two previous terms in the House plus her expert knowledge about the issues and problems we are facing are needed now more than ever.

Crockett will not be bullied when considering legislation. She has a proven track record; while in the Legislature, she sponsored 18 bills that became law.

On Nov. 6, I urge others to join us and vote for Crockett — the candidate with a proven record and the experience required to serve District 57 in the Maine State Legislature.
