Vote for Pam Buck
On Nov. 3, the citizens of Sanford-Springvale have an opportunity to vote for Pamela Buck for Maine House District 18. I met Pam when she moved to Caribou in 2002, and I can call tell you with certainty that she will give 100% as an advocate for her neighbors as your representative in Augusta. When Pam Buck lived in Caribou with her husband Steve and daughters Erin and Regan, she was involved in civic organizations and active in school activities. When her husband’s career took their family to Sanford, I missed the person who devoted much of her time to making Caribou a better place for our children. Caribou’s loss was Sanford’s gain.
You may know Pamela Buck as the wife of Sanford’s city manager or the human resources manager at the York County Shelter Programs, but she is not just defined by these facts you can read in her biography. Please know that Pam’s community commitment is an underlying part of her character, her dedication to lifting those around her is a core part of her value system, and her strong work ethic compels her to finish each commitment she undertakes.
A vote for Pam Buck is one you can be pleased to make. Pamela Buck will work hard to represent your interests in Augusta and is someone you will be proud to have as your Representative. Thank you for this opportunity to tell you about my friend Pam Buck and know that she will welcome your vote in November.

Pam Buck cares about her community
As time as gone by, my education and experiences have solidified my desire to vote for the best folks. This does not mean the best party, the best known or who has the most money.
I have reached the conclusion that I want a person who cares about the place where they live and their neighbors.
I have known Pam Buck for several years now, not only as a coworker but also as a friend. I have discovered that she is a person who truly cares and has put herself in positions, both paid and unpaid, where she can make a difference. She is the person who will put her constituents, not the party first.
I can without reservations support her.

Why I back Buck
I have known Pamela Buck both personally and professionally for several years. As a volunteer at the York County Shelter Programs, I have seen Pamela working with staff first hand. As the Human Resources Specialist, she is tasked with problem solving every day. She keeps a level head and gives everyone that walks into her office the time and attention needed. She is well respected among her peers. On a personal level, she loves a debate about politics respecting everyone’s opinion and views. She makes a political discussion interesting and spirited. Her background embraces an inclusive society where everyone is given opportunities for advancement. She has held various town positions in the past understanding how town agencies are run.
Pamela is concerned about everyday obstacles facing individuals living in her community. I feel her problem solving skills would be an asset to any issue she tackles. She realizes many of these issues can’t be solved overnight but there needs to be a starting point. For these reasons and so many more, I wholeheartedly endorse Pamela for the State Representative District 18 seat. Please vote for her on Tuesday, Nov. 3.
