Larry Pelletier: He values education
I am writing in support of a young man who is running for the Maine Senate in November.
I first met Eric Brakey at a school committee meeting and again later at a city council meeting. He asked me to meet with him and we sat down at an Auburn diner and discussed our thoughts and views on education.
I quickly realized that Brakey values education. He knows that a strong educational system is what will keep the people of this state and of this country moving forward, and once again making the U.S. the greatest country in the world.
Eric Brakey has my support.
Larry Pelletier, Chairman of the Auburn School Committee
