There are real life-and-death reasons to vote for Shenna Bellows for U.S. senator from Maine instead of Susan Collins.

• Collins steadfastly supported the Bush/Cheney misguided war in Iraq that killed and left wounded in body and mind countless American soldiers, including Maine residents, and Iraqis. This war also destroyed the country of Iraq , and led to the current dangerous terrorist situation in Iraq.

• I have never heard Collins question our tax dollars going to Israel, money that helped Israel wage its recent illegal and immoral war on Palestinians, which killed thousands of Palestinians, including babies, and which left homes, schools and hospitals destroyed.

Shenna Bellows, a Mainer from humble beginnings on Mount Desert Island, is a graduate of Middlebury College. This extremely bright woman has many years experience working with government in Maine and in Washington, D.C.
