I am not a fan of government, but when it does something right I have to give it credit.

So here’s why I am writing: For two years, I’ve been praying for a new furnace. I held strong to my prayers and my faith, and with the help of a man somehow connected with Gov. Paul LePage’s office I am getting a new one put in soon.

I am an Army veteran and my son Patrick Dow is now serving in the Army over in Afghanistan.

I want to take this time to thank God for answered prayers and that man for his help with getting me in touch with the right people. It showed me that government isn’t all bad.
