Vote Lewis

While on the Select Board in Bowdoinham I had the satisfaction to serve alongside Peter Lewis. Peter joined the Board in 2014 and It quickly became apparent Peter had a passion for serving his neighborhood and protecting the small-town lifestyle in Bowdoinham.

For six years, Peter has been a champion of individuals, balancing the local spending plan and real estate tax, ensuring shipment of essential services, and remaining concentrated on enhancing Bowdoinham’s facilities with high-speed Internet. In 2019, Peter led the Select Board to acquire a ConnectME grant which allowed growth of broadband access in Bowdoinham, without spending taxpayer money.

I understand that when elected to the Legislature, Peter will continue to concentrate on managing increasing real estate tax, accountable costs, and enhancing Maine’s facilities. Peter will bring frantically needed common sense to the Legislature, the good sense required to recover from the budget deficiency the 130th Legislature will quickly face. I will be voting for Peter Lewis in November. I motivate my next-door neighbors in Bowdoin, Bowdoinham and Richmond to elect Peter Lewis.

Brian Hobart,
Bowdoinham

Vote Tepler

Topsham voters have the chance this November to reelect our impressive representative to Augusta, Denise Tepler. Denise is a refreshingly favorable antidote to the snarling ideological sound that continues to reach our ears from around the country.

Denise works hard to protect Maine’s biggest resource, our land, lakes and sea environment.

She votes to support senior citizens, particularly senior real estate. As Chair of the Health Coverage, Insurance Coverage and Financial Services Committee, her essential issues consist of making health care more economical, tax fairness, and economic security for Maine people. She has actually also served on the Appropriations and Tax Committees, and she is backed by the AFL-CIO.

A previous Topsham school board member, she defends public education and much better schools. She sponsored a bill in the legislature to restore full school revenue to the towns, and therefore lower our property taxes.

Denise Tepler constantly keeps us informed, responds rapidly to constituent inquiries, and appears frequently at local occasions, including our farmers market, where I have talked with her on numerous events.

Above all, Denise is a sensible representative who works across the aisle to get things done. She is a listener, and a doer, of empathy and vision. We require her in Augusta, now more than ever.

Robert C. Williams,
Topsham
