September 18, 2006

Incumbent Senator Phil Bartlett has received the endorsement of the Maine Education Association (MEA) in his bid for reelection in Senate District 6, which includes Gorham, Scarborough and Westbrook.

“ Phil Bartlett has proven to be a friend of education who listens to Maine voters and Maine educators,” said Chris Galgay, President of the Maine Education Association. “His record of support for public education speaks for itself.”

“ I am pleased to receive the MEA’s endorsement,” said Bartlett. “A strong public education system, from kindergarten through college, is essential to building a robust economy.”

Bartlett, who is completing his first term in the Maine Senate, graduated from Gorham High School in 1994 before going on to Tufts University and Harvard Law School. “I was fortunate to have wonderful teachers who challenged me, encouraged me, and prepared me for college,” said Bartlett. “It is important that we continue to strive for excellence in our public schools to maximize the opportunities available to our graduates.”
