AUGUSTA – On Thursday, Senate President Troy Jackson, D-Allagash, presented 11-year-old Emmett Singer of Woodland with a Legislative Sentiment in response to his recent act of kindness displayed on Halloween. Singer was captured by a home security camera filling an empty bowl with his own candy for other trick-or-treaters to enjoy.
“When Emmett saw an opportunity to make the day of fellow trick-or-treaters better, he didn’t hesitate, immediately thinking of others before himself. He took the opportunity to spread kindness and generosity not knowing his selfless action would be caught on camera,” said Pres. Jackson. “It’s folks like Emmett that make me proud to be from the County and hopeful for the future. This holiday season let’s follow Emmett’s lead by looking out for each other and taking care of our neighbors, even when no one is looking.”
A Legislative Sentiment is a significant expression by the Legislature in recognition of civic and public achievements.
