Sara’s commitment to the people of Maine is unwavering. During her 15 years of public service, where she served first as local town council, then as a State Representative and now as Speaker of the House – she has always put Mainers first. As the Democratic nominee for Senate in Maine, Sara is committed to fight for veterans accessibility to the services they need. She has already done some of this work in the Maine House of Representative, where she increased homelessness prevention efforts, passed a law improving mental health care for veterans, and created systems in Maine’s universities and community colleges to help students who are veterans. Sara Gideon’s Republican opponent Susan Collins is directly responsible for the damage to the US Postal Service which is affecting countless Mainers who depend on the mail to vote and for basic essentials like medication.
