When I first met Mark Andre, I was very impressed with his values of dedication and compassion for the people of Maine to achieve a better quality of life.

Andre, Republican candidate for House District 76, talked about the importance of family, personal freedoms, lowering energy costs and taxes, and creating more jobs for the people of Maine.

I believe that Andre is the kind of person who will work hard to serve the common cause of the people of Maine.

More importantly, I believe Andre has the wisdom, knowledge and compassion to do an exceptional job as a public figure in the State House, representing District 76.

Although I have been a lifelong Democrat, I will be voting for Andre. I hope others will join me and give their support to Andre on Nov. 6.
