Recent debates about the bond issue regarding support for downtown Skowhegan show a stark difference between the two men running to represent Skowhegan (District 85) in the state House of Representatives.

Republican Don Skillings takes pride in meeting with the governor to bring support to the downtown Skowhegan project.

What did he bring home to Skowhegan? A promissory note from the governor to release the bond funds in the future. This is worthless.

Democrat Jeff McCabe has quietly lent time and effort to support of the revitalization of downtown Skowhegan over years. His leadership of Lake George Regional Park has demonstrated a commitment to community and fiscal leadership.

There is no question about McCabe’s commitment to making Skowhegan a better place to live, work and raise a family. He walks the walk.
