Since I retired, I have had more time to become familiar with the many issues facing Maine voters this November, and I am delighted to note that Reagan Paul comes through as a very energetic and dedicated fresh new voice on the political scene — just what we need to deal with some of the problems that “Mainers” face at this time.

She holds strong conservative values, and is worthy of our vote.
