CCDC Congratulates Jim Boyle On His Victory!
A Message From Jim Boyle:
First, I want to thank the voters of Gorham and Scarborough for turning out to vote on a day that started out at 5 degrees and ended up at one below zero! This special election was a quick turnaround; just about ten weeks from the resignation to the election. But I met with hundreds of voters from Gorham and Scarborough in that time, and I appreciate all the feedback I received. From talking with citizens on their front porches and door yards, the top issues I heard about were the partisan divide in politics, the need for more renewable energy, and keeping students, teachers, and staff in school and safe.
I’ve been out of the legislature for seven years, and until October I hadn’t planned on running for office, so it will take me some time to get up to speed on what bills are in front of the legislature in the emergency session that just started about a week ago. In general, I will look to support bills related to pandemic safety, renewable energy, energy efficiency, improvement to child protective services and tribal sovereignty.
Jim won a three way race with 57% of the vote! This was the first, but definitely not the last, campaign of 2022.
Congratulations again to Jim!
