As owner of College Carry-Out on Mount Vernon Avenue, I’ve been more frustrated than most about this road’s condition, considering we all have wondered when the city was going to fix it.

I have spoken with Rep. Matt Pouliot, R-Augusta, about this issue many times, and I have found him to be understanding and genuinely concerned.

He proved it when he attended Department of Transportation meetings about the work schedule, and he pushed the department to get temporary patching on the road while the Utility District completed its work.

Pouliot also has been an advocate for a thorough revamp of Mount Vernon Avenue, and that’s going to take place early next year. Matt Pouliot has proven that he genuinely cares about the problems faced by the businesses on Mount Vernon Avenue and the suspension of every car that drives on it.

Let’s send Pouliot back to the State House on Election Day.
