Over the last year, there were several important measures considered in the Maine Legislature. Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association sent notices to members to contact legislators on these issues. As a MOFGA member, I followed through and contacted both my state senator and my representative.

Chip Curry, our state senator for District 11, always responded to me personally and voted accordingly. However, my representative, who is now running against Sen. Curry, never responded to my emails. With research, I learned that she also did not show up to vote at least twice on these crucial issues.

I urge voters in District 11 to reelect Sen. Chip Curry. It is crucial to have a state senator who not only listens to constituents, but also responds and acts.
