Colleen Lachowicz Announces State Senate District 25 Run

Posted on January 13, 2011. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: |

Lachowicz has been the Program Director of school-based services at Kennebec Behavioral Health since 2005. Here is the link to her official campaign Facebook page. From the “About Me” section:

The people of Senate District 25 work hard and play by the rules. We need someone in the State Senate looking out for all of us. We need to make sure that playing by the rules means that, at the end of the day, we don’t just enrich large corporations — that we also enrich our communities.

Access to health care is a fundamental human right, and everyone should be able to afford it. Our kids need quality education in order to get good jobs. Our schools need to turn out graduates that bring world-class employers to our state. We need employers that pay a wage that a person can afford to pay their bills on, save for a home, and even take a vacation once in a while.

In order to accomplish this, our schools need teachers that are treated with dignity and respect. They educate our children, and we all want what’s best for them.

The future of the district — and the state — depends on all of us. I’ll be talking to people all over the district to learn more about what they feel needs to be done in Augusta, and will bring your voices to be heard in the State Senate.

A reminder: SD 25 includes the cities and towns of Albion, Benton, Clinton, Detroit, Pittsfield, Unity Twp. Waterville and Winslow. Currently the seat is held by long-time Maine businessman Sen. Tom Martin, who won his race in 2010 with 51% of the vote.

Martin’s opponent, now former Rep. Pamela Trinward (D-Winslow), was selected to run via a July 6 caucus as a replacement for the incumbent, former Assistant Senate Majority Leader Lisa Marrache (D-Waterville). Marrache had announced in late June 2010 that she would not be seeking re-election. Trinward’s Senate bid created a gap for a Democratic candidate in the HD 77 race, which was filled via a July 25th caucus by Waterville city councilor Thomas Longstaff. Longstaff went on to beat GOP opponent Alek Fortier with 56% of the votes cast in that contest.
