Thirty-three years ago, Betsy Sweet and I both volunteered with Maine Freeze Voter, a group that influenced President Ronald Reagan to sign a nuclear weapons freeze with Russia. And we sang in a four-person group for five years, so I know who she really is.

Smart, strong and determined, a natural leader, Betsy is so warm, fair and fun to work with that everyone, even opposing politicians, like and respect her. Betsy is all about doing the right thing, fairness and making things better for everyone.

Betsy has the most experience getting bills passed. She worked on every state budget for 35 years to ensure funding for progressive causes. As the only Democratic Clean Elections candidate, she will owe allegiance only to you. To know Betsy is to like her. If you choose someone else, rank her second.
