THE GUEST WAS CHRISTINE BURSTEIN
On Sunday, May 18th, a small get together and coffee
was held at a home in Belmont, where District 96 State Representative Candidate, Christine Burstein was the guest of honor. Meeting Christine was both an honor and a delight, and it was so refreshing to learn about her reasons for wanting to run for a political office.
Christine Burstein has tossed her hat in the ring to run for State Representative for the Towns of Belmont, Lincolnville, Liberty, Montville, Morrill, Searsmont and Palermo. Christine made the decision to run to be elected as our representative due to what she has learned from her life experiences from starting out at age 15 working in a local poultry plant to going on to become a Nurse, Family Nurse Practitioner, Small Business Owner, a successful and loving wife and mother, volunteer, and, last but not least, a Master Mariner. (that by itself is no small feat!)
Christine Burstein promises to work as hard as she could to represent all of us in a way in which we deserve to be properly represented. Christine also vowed to work hard to bring jobs to the area which will support Maines beauty, and support a healthy environment for us and our children in the future.
Hey everyone, Its me again, Tidbit Tiddledywinks, The little Poultry Professor of Wisdom and Kindness, coming to you once again from the Dickey Mill Chicken Asylum to remind all of you humans once again to please be kind to one another. Thank you and take care until next time, “Tiddles”.
