Pluecker knows economic struggle

Bill Pluecker is the Independent candidate running for state representative in Appleton, Hope, east Union and Warren. He and his family are hardworking farmers. Their lives are a commitment to community, true grit and forward thinking.

There are many characteristics with the Plueckers that resonate with my own life. I am a full-time working mother with two small children without the means of having a safety net. It is so powerful that we have a political candidate who knows economic struggle, who can look me in my eye and share the same experience. Like the Plueckers, I, too, want a healthy and safe environment for my children. We need a representative in Augusta who will not negotiate clean water and air away for corporate interests.

I want better opportunities for Maine’s working families. Our children are our most important investment in the future. We need to make sure that the Maine we leave them is better than the Maine we were handed. Let’s elect a Legislature that will start planning for our children’s future. Bill Pluecker’s common sense, ingenuity and work ethic will work for all of our families in Augusta.
