When we, the undersigned, go to the polls on Nov. 6, our votes, for the most part, will be easily cast. Not long ago we were in need of assistance and turned to our Democratic and Republican officials serving on both state and national levels.
Bill Cohen forwarded our request to the appropriate office, as did Olympia Snowe. Both requested that we keep them infomred. George Mitchell did not feel it was a federal matter, even though federal funds were involved. Michael Pearson never acknowledged our letters. Thankfully, there was Jack Cashman.
Jack attended meetings, solicited assistance from outside sources, and made himself available whenever he was needed. He showed us that he believes in the sanctity of the family, regardless of their socio-economic status or whether it is the traditional two-parent or a single-parent family.
We are deeply appreciative of his assistance and want to inform the public of his support for his constituency. It did not matter to Jack if we were Republicans or Democrats. Neither should it matter to the Republicans in his district that he is a Democrat. People of both parties should vote for the person who gets the job done. We tell you from experience, he is that person. D. Winthrop-Denning and nine other signatories Old Town
