Rep. Jeff McCabe, D-Skowhegan, is running for state Senate in Somerset County and has been endorsed by the Maine Education Association. As an educator, my first concern is doing right by our children.

Jeff has never stopped standing up for our schools. In Augusta, Jeff has worked to see the state meet its voter-mandated 55 percent funding of school budgets. He has prevented further cuts to school funding by defending revenue sharing, which keeps property taxes low. Jeff knows that our kids need to be prepared to enter the workforce and has been a vocal proponent of expanded vocational training and certificate programs.

Jeff’s wife Sara is a public school teacher and their kids go to school here. Sara’s insight and first-hand experience allow Jeff to have a thorough understanding of our children’s needs. I’m proud to cast my vote for Jeff McCabe on Nov. 8 and I hope you’ll join me.
