I first met Colleen Lachowicz in 2008, during her tenure as Waterville Democratic Party chairwoman.

A lot of things about her impressed me back then, but there was one very memorable thing.

A lot of campaign volunteers came and went out of a house on Gilman Street in Waterville that year. What most didn’t realize is that it was Colleen’s house. She opened it to the Obama campaign because it ran out of room in their Common Street office. Colleen believed so strongly in making sure that everyone could participate in the political process that she gave up her living room.

When she told me that she was running for state Senate, I immediately offered my help, and came on board early as her treasurer. I am proud to have my name on Colleen’s literature and hope you’ll support her on June 12.
