Letter: Voting for the best candidate, not the party

Gorham Times: Charlie Hamblen

As a registered Republican, I often lean towards voting for that party candidate. Typically, I search for the best candidate in any given position and vote for them, regardless of party affiliation. The animosity, political bias and embarrassing state of politics today has made me reject the current status quo and search for a path to improve government for us all. This year, I am voting Kyle Bailey for State Representative, the Democratic candidate, because he’s thoughtful, practical, civil, and he’ll be a strong voice for all in Augusta.

At a time when we’re so deeply divided as a state and a nation, we need leaders like Kyle who care passionately about improving all lives and who are focused on solving problems, not on scoring points, pointing fingers, or kicking the can down the road.

I believe, Kyle is independent-minded and has old fashioned common sense. He has demonstrated political courage by taking on leaders of his own party to champion bold reforms to Maine’s laws creating opportunity and a more vibrant democracy. A vote for Kyle is a vote for bipartisan leadership that will bring positive change to Gorham and our state.

As an entrepreneur and business owner, Kyle knows the challenges of managing a team of people and meeting payroll for the week. He’ll be a strong voice for small business in the State House. When he was on the school committee, Kyle worked for common sense balanced budgets and advocated for policies that opened new doors of opportunities for Gorham’s students while not breaking the bank. He’ll do the same in Augusta.

Please consider voting Kyle Bailey for State House on November 3. To learn more about Kyle Bailey, visit his website at or
