“…Active, articulate, and thoughtful” — an endorsement from Hannah Pingree

As a former legislator and leader in the State House, I worked closely with Brian Hubbell over the course of several years on key issues that impacted the island.  As a leader of the MDI school board, Brian was among the most active, articulate, and thoughtful people I encountered during that entire debate. His diligence and solution-oriented approach made a tremendous difference in negotiating a plan that kept the MDI area schools and system of governance intact, and allowed a great school system to continue and thrive.

Now, Brian Hubbell is running for the Maine State House and I can think of no better person to represent the island in the Maine Legislature.  I know his fair and reasonable approach will allow him to work with members on both sides of the aisle, but also make a difference on the issues that matter — especially to the communities of the coast.

I believe Brian will work passionately and intelligently on issues that matter for our state, from creating the jobs of the future, to protecting our environment, to educating opur kids. Whether chairing the MDI School System board, serving on a state-wide climate change task force, or chairing a local forestry committee, Brian has repeatedly shown his understanding for diverse issues and his commitment to community and state. He has proven he has a gift for explaining complicated issues, from tax policy to the school funding formula.

In a time when much of the news out of Augusta is about hot tempers and partisan battles, I can think of no better antidote than electing more people like Brian Hubbell to the State House.
