Letter to the Editor on Ellie Espling

Sep 19, 2018

Dear Editor,

The Honorable Ellie Espling is a powerful candidate for the Maine Senate and I hope that people support her bid for Senate the way that she has supported the people of her Maine House District.  I live in Portland, which is NOT her district, but Ellie is my "go-to-person" when I have a question or need from our Legislators.  She has always been receptive, filled with ideas and information, and takes the time to listen to all voters, not just "her people" so that she can make well directed and intelligent choices for us all.

I am proud to serve on many committees with Ellie at the state and national level where we have focused our attention on women in government.  Ellie and I have co-chaired SheLeads, whose mission is to identify, recruit, train and support women for all elected offices in Maine.  This program is so successful that our National Federation of Republican Women has recognized and recommended it.  Espling is our National Committee Woman and she is keeping an eye and ear on national issues that may be of interest in Maine.

Please support Ellie Espling in her bid for Maine Senate, she is the best candidate and we will all be well-served.

Thank you,

Barbara Campbell Harvey
