As a 70-year-old, I am naturally concerned about issues affecting the elderly. In my case, I have good health insurance and a decent retirement income. However, many other elderly citizens of this state are not as fortunate as I am and need assistance to receive adequate health care, including hospitalization services and home health care.

Rep. Erin Herbig, D-Belfast, serving as House chairwoman of the Aging Caucus, has worked diligently to allow more Maine seniors to maintain their dignity and independence by remaining able to age in their own homes and own communities. She supports family caregivers and fights to ensure that funding for hospitals and home health care is made available to that end.

Additionally, Herbig is committed to growing the economy of her district and the state by supporting the businesses that provide job opportunities to our residents.

I urge the voters of Senate District 11 in Waldo County to vote to send her to the Senate in November.
