Letter to the Editor

Democrats in CD2 have the opportunity to elect a unique, well-qualified candidate to Congress in Jared Golden. Jared was born in Lewiston and raised in Leeds, Maine, and served combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan as a Marine. Upon his return, he attended and graduated from Bates College, then worked for Senator Collins in Washington. He then decided to serve once again, winning elections in 2014 and 2016 to the Maine House of Representatives representing Lewiston, where he now lives.

Now he is taking his belief in service to the next level, hoping to represent our district in Congress. The combination of Jared Golden's youth, vigor, service, knowledge of the district that he has called home his entire life, and political experience, gives our district the unique opportunity to elect someone who truly knows and cares about us to Congress.

Jared will represent our dreams, hopes, and needs now and well into the future. Please join me in supporting Jared Golden for Congress.
