Senator King, it was with pleasure that I voted for you. I live overseas, in Madrid now and in South Africa before. My heart’s home is Maine and no matter where I am the lessons I learned in MSAD #34 and out on Gotts Island, making donuts at the Ellsworth Dunkin’ Donuts and fishing offshore with Dickey Phippen, these lessons and perspectives on life, working, and taking care of one another have stuck with me. I am proud to vote for someone who brings this sensibility to politics and to the nation’s capital. Dirigo, show them how it’s done.

cheers,

ben
