Adams can make things happen

To the editor:
    These past two years have been a trying time for the northern Maine community as well as the state in general. Any efforts made by the legislators have not been able to stimulate northern Maine’s economy, the governor has spent his first two years slashing health care and education programs, and our county has even faced an increase in dangerous recreational drugs. Many of the politicians currently in the Statehouse would appear to be ineffective at best and untethered to the needs of the average northern Mainer.
    In my four years as a pharmacy technician however, I did have the pleasure of working every day with someone who was passionate about providing excellent and trustworthy health care to everyone on a daily basis. He is someone who knows about the bureaucratic squabbling that goes on in the state Medicaid department at the citizens’ expense. He is someone who is kind and friendly, but whom is a force to be reckoned with when he puts his mind to getting something done. And I know that he has trained and campaigned in an effort to gain our trust. But as I said, in my four years of working with him he already earned mine and I urge you to give him yours as well this fall.
    I have lived in northern Maine for 21 years. I am a 23-year-old who also attends the University of Maine at Presque Isle and when I’m done with school I would like to be able to stay right here in northern Maine when I graduate. Let me reiterate my points. We have a candidate running this year who will fight for affordable health care, who will fight to create jobs for our struggling economy and who will fight for our local businesses to be able to prosper. This is the man that I want to lead our district, lead our county, and lead our state. And that man who I encourage you to vote for this fall is Darrell Adams for state representative in District 6.
