RAYMOND - Jessica Fay of Raymond announces her candidacy for State Representative in Maine House District 66, parts of Casco, Poland and Raymond.
Fay’s priorities include economic growth through small business development and property tax relief. Fay is also deeply committed to protecting our forests, lakes, streams and farms, recognizing these are among Maine’s most valuable assets.
“I have spent the last 15 years listening to my customers talk about what’s important to them” Fay said. “Most people are frustrated, and recognize that government can’t function at the extremes. I will work to bring a balanced, creative perspective to Augusta. It is imperative that public policy supports the ability for Maine businesses to thrive, where entrepreneurs can let good ideas flourish. Mainers need to have the tools to create the good paying jobs our community needs, and a workforce educated to fill those jobs.”

"Jess is thoughtful and reasonable and will definitely work with anyone to resolve the issues that concern us all. She follows through when action is called for,” said Col. Bob Akins USMC, Ret.
