I am writing to endorse my former fellow crewmember, Capt. Stan Zeigler, who is running for the Maine House in District 96, which includes Montville, Searsmont, Lincolnville, Morrill, Belmont, Liberty and Palermo.

Since Stan retired, he seems hell-bent on public service and I think he would do a great job. I sailed with him as my first officer for more than 20 years through storms, icebergs and pirate attacks, so I think he should be able to handle the Legislature. He was always a hard worker and the crew respected him.
