Keep Carpenter in the Maine Senate

To the editor:

Aroostook and Northern Penobscot residents have the good fortune to be represented by Michael Carpenter in the Maine Senate. Mike treats all people with respect, dignity and kindness.

He grew up on an Aroostook County farm, served his country with honor in combat infantry during the Vietnam War and returned home to serve in the Legislature. Mike went on to become state attorney general, manage his own law practice and run a successful small business. 

 Mike knows what it is like to work hard that is why he has pursued policies to help small business, provide access to health care and strengthen our communities. He wrote a bill to provide job training and health benefits for veterans, obtained a grant for a Caribou veterans group and worked for judicial reform. Concerned about the loss of young people from northern Maine, he is working with local groups and the legislature to provide incentives and good paying jobs.

Mike has said “Maine and the country have been good to me and I want to continue to give back.”  I urge you to send Mike Carpenter back to the Maine Senate.

John L. Clark
