I urge voters in Hallowell, Manchester and West Gardiner to join me in voting for Charlotte Warren of Hallowell, Democratic candidate for House District 84. My relationship with Charlotte goes back decades: for 10 years we taught together on the TRIO team at Kennebec Valley Community College, and we now serve as board members of the Hallowell Food Bank.

Charlotte is a good listener, hard worker and tireless advocate for the community. When people want things done, they call Char. We need people like her in the Legislature.

If you live in Hallowell, Manchester or West Gardiner, chances are Charlotte has knocked on your door — or she will very soon. Since May, she has knocked on almost 2,000 doors in an effort to understand voters’ concerns.

On Nov. 4, I will vote for Charlotte Warren because she listens well, works hard and get things done. Please join me.
