I am writing this letter in support of Matt Pouliot, Republican candidate for House District 57.

We chose to move to Augusta and start a family here. Pouliot works tirelessly to encourage others to do the same.

As a School Board member, I appreciate Pouliot’s passion for education. He truly understands what our children need to succeed.

Pouliot also serves as the vice chairman of the Planning Board with my husband. I have seen Pouliot use common-sense solutions to help create a business-friendly environment in Augusta, while maintaining the integrity of our neighborhoods.

We would like nothing more than for our kids to come back to Augusta when they grow up, and a representative like Pouliot, with fresh new ideas, gives us hope. Please vote for Pouliot on Nov. 6.
