Ben Twitchell has my vote to represent Winslow and Benton in the House of Representatives. Choosing a candidate to represent me in Augusta is never a decision I take lightly. Twitchell is a candidate I know and who I can trust to do what’s best for Winslow, Benton and the state of Maine.

He is a proven leader who has served our community for years as a member of the Town Council. He’s been a mentor for our local kids as a Scout leader for many years.

Twitchell, a Republican, will work hard to lower the tax burden on our working families and small businesses. He’ll work to enact real welfare reform, to clean up fraud and abuse, and to make sure our scarce resources go to those who are truly in need.

We need to send a representative to Augusta who will not do the bidding of special interest groups and their lobbyists who line the halls of the State House.

It’s time we send someone to Augusta in November who’ll work for the people of Winslow and Benton. This is why I’m voting for Twitchell in District 78,
