“I am proud to endorse Eloise Vitelli in her election to replace Seth Goodall,” said Rep. Pingree. “Eloise has the leadership skills we need in the Maine State Senate.”
Rep. Pingree continued, “Eloise will use her job creation experience to build on Maine’s strengths by supporting local farmers and small businesses. And we can count on Eloise to fight for access to affordable healthcare for all Mainers. I hope that you’ll agree that Eloise Vitelli is the best choice for State Senate and give her your vote on August 27th.”

“I am honored to have Congresswoman Pingree’s support,” said Vitelli. “She has been a leader for women, small business, and Maine coastal communities both in Congress and the Maine Senate. I hope to follow her example of strong leadership for Maine’s communities.”
