George Lapointe has been a good friend for about 25 years, but that’s not why I’m voting to reelect him as Hallowell mayor.

I’m voting for him because I’ve seen how good a leader he is as mayor, and previously as commissioner of Marine Resources and president of a local church. Knowing George personally, I can say he is a genuine and caring person who actively seeks input from a diverse array of people. As mayor, among other things, George regularly walks the downtown seeking input from business owners and holds mayor’s hours at the weekly farmer’s market.

I really like George’s consensus-building approach to making Hallowell a better place to live, and the importance he sees in balancing costs and benefits of major projects. In this approach, not everyone gets exactly what they want, but in my opinion the best decisions are made this way.
