To the Editors:
I support Alison Harris’ bid to represent District 6 in Brunswick. Downtown Brunswick is vital to us all.
She is eminently qualified to assume this daunting task. Since moving to Brunswick, she has immersed herself in volunteer work. As a greeter at the Brunswick Visitor Center, she has gained an intimate knowledge of all that Brunswick, not just the downtown, has to offer. Working with her on a People Plus project, I got to appreciate firsthand her motivational and organizational skills. Her efforts with People Plus earned her its Volunteer of the Year award.
Alison’s career in successfully directing nonprofit organizations has positioned her to uniquely navigate through the challenges of creating and managing a town budget that is strained to the limit. She is also acutely aware of the strains of annual tax increases and is dedicated to finding ways to broaden the tax base to help relieve the household burden.
Finally, Alison fully understands and appreciates the Bowdoin-Brunswick relationship. One does not thrive without the other. She will work collaboratively with the College to assure that the special bond is further cemented. Please vote for Alison Harris for District 6.
