I want to thank everyone who voted in the June 14 Maine House District 99 Democratic primary. I am deeply moved by the expression of confidence from all of you.

I need to thank my core team for guiding me and being there these past six months. I have heard it said that a team is like a tool set: No one tool can do all the jobs, but together they can. Because of all of you, we will now move toward the general election.

I do not have enough words to thank all who generously contributed their time to our primary campaign. Without all the grassroots efforts and volunteers, I could not be where I am today. A heartfelt thank you to each one of you.

Last but not least, I want to give a great big thank you to my family for giving me their full support to run for the House seat in District 99. Their support allows me the time and energy needed to run for the House of Representatives.

I will be working as hard as I can to win this election, and with your help and support, I am confident we can be victorious on Nov. 8. I am committed to being a representative who listens to your ideas, fights for our community’s needs and ensures that you always have a voice at the table.
