Eloise Vitelli Has Perfect Attendance Record In Maine Senate
Democratic Senator Eloise Vitelli of Arrowsic has a 100% voting record for the second session of the 126th Legislature. She is one of 12 Democratic senators to receive a perfect attendance score, meaning she voted on, or was excused from, all roll call votes.
“I am honored to represent the people of Sagadahoc County and the town of Dresden – the very least I can do is show up,” said Senator Vitelli. “I am even prouder of the votes I took to invest in our economy, increase access to pre-K, and pave the way for solar energy in the State of Maine.”
During the second session, the Senate voted for two bipartisan supplemental budgets to pay the state’s bills, restore Governor LePage’s proposed cuts to education, and reduce and eliminate the wait lists for people with severe disabilities to get critical home-based care services.
The Legislature also approved measures to increase access to pre-Kindergarten programs, create a road map for solar energy in Maine, restore critical revenue sharing funds to Maine’s cities and towns, and create jobs and invest in Maine’s small business economy through $50 million in bonds.
The 126th Legislature adjourned May 2, concluding its work for the year.
