Former mayor backs longtime legislator

To the editor:

I welcome the opportunity to write this letter in support of Rep. Barry Hobbins, who is running for state Senate. We have been very fortunate in the past few years to be represented by Sen. Linda Valentino, whose experience in state politics and devotion to the communities she served made her an effective legislator. We thank Sen. Valentino for her service and wish her a happy retirement.

We are most fortunate to have another strong experienced advocate for the people step forward to serve the communities of Limington, Hollis, Buxton, Old Orchard Beach and Saco. Barry Hobbins has a proven track record and will again utilize his political experience to represent all of us. There are only a few Senate seats in York County so we need to elect the most qualified, experienced and respected candidate on June 14. Vote for Barry Hobbins for State Senate.

Bill Johnson, mayor emeritus Saco
