To the editor:
My name is Tim Theriault, and I am currently the House Republican for District #79, which is comprised of Albion, Benton, China and Unity Plantation. With the new redistricting that occurred, China, Windsor, Palermo, Somerville and Hibberts Gore are now House District #62. It’s been a pleasure serving the good citizens of his district, but I will be termed out this year, and I want to leave it in good hands. That is why my endorsement for my vacating seat for House Representative of District #62 is for Jennifer Tuminaro.
I have known Jen and her family for many years. Her husband, Michael, and I worked together when he was with the Sheriff’s Office and I was with the China Fire Department. Since then, I have had the opportunity to spend many hours talking to Jennifer and have encouraged her to seek this position. I know she will represent the district well.
Jennifer embodies all of the ideals that make up a good representative. She is a hard-working, resourceful, driven leader who supports those around her. She grew up in the New York area but moved to Maine over 20 years ago, to seek a better quality of life for her and her family. Her first language is Spanish, as her parents immigrated to America in the ‘70s. She loves Maine, and she’s looking to keep it the great state that it is currently.
Jennifer has a master of business administration degree from the University of Maine and currently works for the CDC as a finance manager. She and her husband manage two small businesses in town, a private investigations firm, BlackRock Investigations and Consulting, and a guide service, Maine Upland Guide Service. With her business experience and her passion for education, I know that she will represent and lead our community well.
A resident of China for over 20 years, Jen has volunteered at China Primary School teaching Spanish to our youngsters, has coached soccer in the China Rec program for years, and has substituted at Erskine Academy.
I wholeheartedly support Jennifer Tuminaro for the House seat of District #62. I hope you will, too.
