Statement:

Our challenge is to assure that we have a state government that works for all the people of Maine. The current legislature has ignored or altered the wishes of most voters by refusing to enact several referendums passed in recent years.

 

I think we can do better, and we can be better. We can treat people with respect and fairness. We can better protect our most vulnerable citizens. We can provide better opportunities in education, job training and small business startups and expansions. We can have better access to affordable health care that includes vision, dental and addiction treatment. We can be better stewards of our one and only environment. We can be better at having civil and respectful discussions when we disagree. We can be better citizens and be more involved in our communities. Regardless of our own current situation, we can be better.

 

I’m stepping up to do my part to help all of us in Bucksport and Orrington have a state government that ensures we have fair and open opportunity to pursue and achieve our dreams of a better today and a brighter future for ourselves, children and grandchildren.
