Peter Weston, a Republican from Montville, is running against Christine Burstein, a Democrat from Lincolnville, in the race for Maine House District 96.

Weston was raised on a farm, took a position in the school system and is riding the coattails of his wife, a former state senator. Burstein has dedicated her life to volunteering her time to the community and wants to make a difference.

Burstein has been on the school board, making decisions in the best interest of the children without the bias introduced through employment by that school.

Weston has been a teacher and a principal but since he was being paid by the school and must answer to its budget, he was not making unbiased decisions solely with the best interest of the students in mind.

We need someone to listen to people so she can fairly and honestly represent them. That’s Christine Burstein.
