|Freedom Salute for 133rd Engineer Battalion and 1025th Survey and Design Team|
Representative Craig Hickman has been a consistent community presence as a member of many different service organizations, including the Winthrop Hot Meal Kitchen, Sons of the American Legion, and the Winthrop Area Rotary Club since well before his election to the Legislature. He has continued his direct service to the community and remains focused on the key issue of hunger relief, especially for seniors and vulnerable families with young children.
Craig remains the single most responsive public servant I know. He was very supportive of me, my family, and my unit before, during, and after our recent deployment to Afghanistan as part of the 133rd Engineer Battalion. He is caring and compassionate about the issues most important to military members, veterans, and our families.
As a registered Republican I feel very strongly that our Legislators should continue to reform and improve our state government. Craig believes in the importance of carefully monitoring government spending, eliminating waste wherever it occurs, and using sensible solutions to budgetary problems that everyone can agree on.
In every conversation I have ever had with Craig about community issues he has impressed with how seriously he takes his duty to honestly represent us and our views. He has made it clear to me that he sees the needs of this district as different from those of others, especially the larger cities.
All too often people of goodwill like Craig feel intimidated by the political process and chose to stay out of the race. I think we are fortunate to have the opportunity to re-elect someone who quite clearly understands our community issues at every level and can be counted on to work together with other Legislators to get things done.
I look forward to casting my vote for Craig Hickman on November 4th and encourage others in Winthrop, Readfield, and North Monmouth to do the same.
