Former legislator endorses candidate

To the editor:

It has been an honor to represent the people of Old Orchard Beach in the Legislature. I have lived in Old Orchard Beach for most of my life and I always fought for the best interests of our great town in my time here.

As your state representative, I was able to work with people who were advocates for what they believed in and one of those people I worked with was Lori Gramlich. As executive director of the National Association of Social Workers, I saw Lori support access to mental health treatment, work on issues for our seniors and work with colleagues to address the opioid epidemic in our state. Lori also advocated for fair tax and budget issues during her time with the Maine Association of Nonprofits. She has the experience necessary to have an impact for our town, at the state level. I believe Lori will provide dependable, effective leadership we can count on.

Old Orchard Beach needs someone who will continue to be our voice in Augusta. I believe Lori Gramlich is the best candidate for our town and I hope you will join me in voting for her on Nov. 6.

Hon. George Hogan Old Orchard Beach
