Democratic Rep. Sharon Treat provides a strong and persuasive voice for working people, especially her constituents in District 79.

When Carleton Woolen Mill closed because of foreign competition, many workers were left jobless after decades with the company.

In response, Treat sponsored the law that provided job training and access to education as well as peer support with the Department of Labor.

Believing that those who work should make a living wage, Treat has supported increases in the minimum wage.

Big banks and mortgage companies can be formidable adversaries; Treat has worked to make sure that they collaborate with responsible homeowners through a court mediation program to avoid foreclosures.

Vote for Treat to ensure that her energy, caring, intelligence and experience continue to protect her constituents in Hallowell, Farmingdale, West Gardiner and the state of Maine as a whole.
