Saco senator had perfect voting record

Sen. Linda Valentino (D-Saco) had a perfect attendance and voting record during the recently concluded legislative session.

Valentino cast 258 votes during the second regular session of the 127th Maine Legislature — 100 percent of the votes recorded, excluding absences excused by the president of the Senate for illness or other extenuating circumstances.

“It has been an honor to represent the people of Senate District 31,” Valentino said. “They elected me to show up and be their voice in Augusta and I’m proud my voting record shows I’ve done just that.”

During the second regular session, lawmakers cast votes to step up the fight against drug addiction, increase investments in local schools, cut taxes for Maine homeowners and businesses and boost integrity in Maine’s welfare system.

Valentino also had a 100 percent attendance record during the first regular session in 2015. She didn’t miss a single vote since her re-election in 2014.
