An advocate for small farms and local food, whose 30-year career as registered nurse and midwife took her from Searsport to halfway across the Pacific Ocean, is a candidate for Maine legislature to represent nine Waldo County towns.

Heather “Betsy” Garrold is the first member of the Maine Green Independent Party to announce for Legislature this year, according to a news release.

She will run in the newly designated House District 38 to represent the town of Knox, where she lives, along with eight other Waldo County towns: Brooks, Thorndike, Unity, Jackson, Waldo, Monroe, Swanville, and part of Frankfort.
