To the Editor:
The voters of District 52 have the opportunity to elect someone who will work hard for the people of the District and the State of Maine. John Stewart of Washington is concerned about the excessive cost of running state government and wants to be a part of the solution.
John and his opponent, Democrat Lisa Miller of Somerville, were both part of a recent forum for candidates that I attended. I was impressed with John and the knowledge he has on the issues. Being a small businessman himself, John understands how legislation in past sessions has been burdensome to business. Two reports, the MERI and NFIB reports have just been released and contains a list of each Legislator and his/her voting record on bills that will be harmful and/or beneficial to businesses in Maine.
For anyone who is interested in learning how your Legislator voted on these issues, you can go to the Web sites of each and see for yourself that we need a Legislator like John Stewart if we expect businesses to come to Maine.
I have been a Legislator for 14 years and have seen many candidates who say they want to work for small business but when they arrive in Augusta they vote differently. I know John Stewart and as a family man and a businessman, he will work hard for the people of District 52 and the State of Maine.
John Stewart has my full support and I hope he has yours too.
Christine Savage, State Senator, District 22
