As my children grow up, I see what a positive impact sports have had on their lives. They’ve learned determination, teamwork, cooperation and perseverance. To give that experience, many people of the community need to be involved in supporting youth athletics.

Joel Pitcher of Jefferson is the vice president of the Jefferson Sports Association. From coaching youth soccer and Little League baseball to being involved with Saturday afternoon fundraisers, Pitcher has been a fantastic role model for my kids.

Pitcher is a committed member of the community who is truly looking out for families in our area. I am glad to know he is running for the House of Representatives in District 50. I hope others will join me in supporting him this November so he can serve our district (Waldoboro, part of Jefferson, Bremen and Nobleboro) in Augusta.
