As a Republican who recently changed my party affiliation to Democratic, I am enthusiastically supporting Chip Curry for Maine state senator representing Waldo County. Chip supported legislation that funded 55% of K-12 education costs and supported property tax relief for seniors.

As a senior and former educator, these mean a lot to me. I also spent hours driving Chip around some towns in Waldo County as he went door-to-door campaigning. His willingness to discuss any ideas people presented to him in a calm rational manner, his focus on women and children’s welfare, and his willingness to work across party lines for the benefit of Waldo County citizens make Chip the obvious choice to me.

I hope you will support him, too.
