C. Mercier: A compassionate heart
Eric Brakey is my choice for Maine Senate.
I met him for the first time at the polls last June, and again when he came to visit my home. He was going door-to-door, listening to the concerns of the people he is seeking to represent.
After speaking in-depth with him — and looking him in the eyes — I can say with all confidence that he has a compassionate heart, a strong mind and a work ethic that will get things done in Augusta.
I hope the people of Auburn, Mechanic Falls, Minot, Poland and New Gloucester will join me in sending Eric Brakey to represent us in the Maine Senate in November.
