Letter to the Editor: Re-elect Senator Claxton

| John Salisbury |

The citizens of Auburn, Mechanic Falls, Minot, New Gloucester and Poland are extremely fortunate to have Ned Claxton as their State Senator.

I have had the opportunity to get to know and work with legislators on both sides of the aisle when I lobbied on behalf of municipalities (1966-1979).  Ned is exceptional!!

  • He is a great listener no matter what your political persuasion.
  • Hard work is nothing new to Ned.  He devoted his work life to serving the health care needs of Auburn- Lewiston residents as a pediatrician and founder of Family Healthcare Associates business.
  • I know of no other candidate who has called on 9,000 homes to listen to the needs and concerns of voters in his district.
  • As a member of the Health and Human Services Committee he contributed his medical expertise and advocated to end abusive and surprise health care billing and to limit the cost of insulin.
  • His interests are broad and include concern for health care, the environment, rights of Maine workers, and the needs of municipal government.

I highly recommend you cast a vote for Senator Ned Claxton at the 2020 general election.

— John Salisbury, New Gloucester
