I am thrilled to be able to vote for Chloe Maxmin on Nov. 3 (running for State Senate District 13), someone who is devoted to serving her constituents. I received a call from one of her volunteers to check up on me during this pandemic and to offer help, if needed. How timely and kind and neighborly and unexpected! How old-fashioned! But isn't that exactly what should happen? For a young person to be concerned about senior citizens' needs is especially admirable.
But more importantly, she also represents what I hope for in the future: a green New Deal, support for public education, access to affordable and decent health insurance, and an accessible and caring state government.
