It’s time to put some balance back in the Maine House. Patsy Crockett, Democratic candidate for House District 57, is a centrist, an experienced legislator who has a record of rapidly responding to the questions and requests of her constituents.

A few years ago, I had a question regarding the interpretation of a Maine law and regulations. Within 48 hours of my contacting her, Crockett sent me a response from the Attorney General’s Office with the answer I needed.

If others are as concerned as I am with the curtailments in benefits for retired state workers and tax cuts that largely benefit those who are already well off, I hope they will join me in voting for Crockett.

Let’s return some balance to the Maine House of Representatives.
