As a professor at the University of Maine, I know we can count on Sen. Elizabeth M. Schneider to work to strengthen education. She serves on the Education and Cultural Affairs Committee in the Maine Senate. She understands the connections between education and the future success of our state and nation. The link between surviving in this ever-changing global economy and making support available for education are clearly understood by Schneider.
Working tirelessly to secure funds for K-12 education and additional funds for higher education, Schneider was successful in securing millions of dollars for our district. She worked to provide local control on school decisions. She succeeded in obtaining desperately needed funding for the university and Community College systems. Her work earned her the endorsement of the Maine Education Association among many others.
Schneider is one of those rare individuals who works to bring people of different backgrounds and political views together. She believes we need people with a multitude of strengths and ideas to confront the challenges our state faces. She has the knowledge and experience to continue to serve our interests well when she is re-elected.
We have the opportunity once again to vote for Schneider in the upcoming election, Nov. 7. We are fortunate she is willing to continue to serve us. Our Sen. Schneider is the kind of person we say we want to represent us. She is intelligent, honest, caring, experienced and professional.
Devoted to our district and state, she works in a collaborative manner, but is also fearless in the face of opposition.
