"Donna Bailey’s devotion to her community, as seen in her volunteering every week for the 13 weeks of the Saco Parks & Rec Food program, is a civics lesson for all. Donna continues to work for the community in Augusta on taxation issues, legal procedures, and of issues near and dear to Saco residents such as the Saco Shoreline and Camp Ellis Jetty. Her advocacy for Saco has been exemplary! Thank you Representative Bailey for your diligent work on behalf of our community and you have my support for State Senator!" – Bill Doyle
Last March, as many of us in Maine were looking forward to gearing up for a break in the weather and preparing to enjoy our eventual wonderful summer, the coronavirus pandemic hit us like the wave of a tsunami. Overnight, schools across Maine closed, businesses across the state closed, and many were left frightened and uncertain as to how to proceed and how these closures would impact our communities. State government shifted much of its operations to remote work and the Legislature abruptly adjourned, as all of us in the Legislative Branch agreed that it was the safest thing to do as we tried to navigate these uncertainties.
