LETTERS: Vote for Woods


As a businesswoman who’s been personally acquainted with him for the last 10 years, I know firsthand the character, hard work, dedication to family and commitment to creative problem solving that will make Steve Woods one of the best state senators in Maine.

Steve is a successful businessman, which I admire. It isn’t easy running a business of any size these days, yet Steve has overcome many of the usual challenges to make his company, Tidesmart Global, one of the best recognized marketing firms in the country, bringing in millions in outside capital and providing dozens of well-paying jobs while administering complex health care and other benefits programs in the Falmouth area.

This entrepreneurial, can-do spirit alone would make him a great state senator. However, as someone who also has watched him and his wife Katie raise their children, I can attest to the fact that there are other, more important variables in play. At the end of the day, Steve is a warm-hearted family man who cares about people and wants to see them succeed.

We need more people like Steve in the Maine Senate: a pro-business Democrat and imaginative problem solver who cares about people and loves the communities of Senate District 25.

On June 10, join me in voting for Steve Woods as the Democratic nominee best suited to bring prosperity and sanity to the State House.
