My husband is Republican and I am independent.

We have two kids, and we are quite aware of the decisions being made for their future and the future of all our kids.

I have known Rep. Jeff McCabe, D-Skowhegan, and his family for over nine years. In that time frame, he has shown a level of respect, curiosity, open-minded listening and determination for our community and every individual.

McCabe consciously and respectfully considers his decisions for all our families, our environment, job growth, economics, recreation and education for all our kids, and social issues to a level that makes me and my husband very confident in re-electing him as our representative for House District 85. He will reach across the aisle in the House, working together, to make decisions that we need.
