I’ve had the pleasure of working as a volunteer with Republican Matt Pouliot, seeking to represent House District 57. I am impressed with his willingness to step up and do what needs to be done. He will bring this attitude to the State House and represent us well.

Pouliot is genuine, approachable and enthusiastic. He’s our neighbor and friend, involved in the Downtown Alliance, trying to strengthen business and shops in Augusta’s downtown.

He’s one of the next generation who hasn’t left Maine but is striving to make a living here in the real estate industry, while also trying to keep other young people in Maine. Pouliot is passionate about helping foster an environment in which small business can grow and prosper so Maine families can thrive.

For all these reasons, I’m voting Pouliot on Nov. 6 and I hope others will join me.
