I urge Camden and Rockport voters to re-elect Rep. Stephen Bowen to the Legislature. He has served his constituents extremely well and is a man of remarkable integrity, dedication, intelligence and judgment.
Bowen has worked diligently to control government spending, lower taxes, reduce health care costs, reform state government to make it more efficient, create jobs and make Maine an even better place to live and work. His experience and leadership on the Appropriations Committee, which writes the state budget, benefits his constituents and all Mainers.
Supporters of Bowen’s opponent, Dave Miramant, have praised him for being a nice guy (which he is) and for his time on the Camden Select Board. How-ever, his time on the board is best remembered for his vote to not allow a mother of a soldier off at war to hang ribbons in his honor – a vote for which he was widely and rightly criticized.
Bowen has done an outstanding job in the Legislature and deserves to be re-elected.
