With all the economic challenges facing our state, we should vote for candidates who know how the private sector works.

In House District 56, there is a candidate who’s run a small business, who’s met a payroll and who’s balanced a budget: Republican Corey Wilson.

Thanks to this valuable experience, Wilson knows what kinds of policies will help create jobs.

He understands that small businesses are the backbone of the Maine economy, and the key to our growth.

He’s shown this through his work with the Augusta Downtown Alliance, to reinvigorate our city.

Wilson has not only worked in the private sector, he’s also served his country in the Marines and with the Department of Homeland Security.

He has the kind of diverse background that our legislators need.

I know that Wilson will put Maine jobs first, and that’s why I’ll be supporting him.
