On Election Day, I hope you cast your vote for my mother, Rep. Jackie Lundeen, who is running for Senate District 34, which encompasses towns from Presque Isle south to Houlton and into southern Aroostook.
My mom was born and raised in Mars Hill where she has been involved with the family farm for more than 40 years. She understands the issues of working families, farm owners and small businesses. She has served four terms in the Legislature and is well respected in Augusta where she has worked across party lines to get things done. She serves on the Agriculture Committee and Inland Fisheries and Wildlife Committee. These key areas represent many lives and interests of the people in Aroostook.
She has been a strong opponent of school consolidation, taking on her own party to represent the views of many who live in very rural areas in Aroostook County who would be adversely impacted by consolidation.
What I like most about my mother is she has common sense, quiet dignity, down-to-earth style and a hardworking farm background. Please vote for my mom, Jackie Lundeen, for Senate District 34.
