Previous Elected Public Office(s) Held: State representative (two years)
In 2018, I ran promising that I would serve as a bridge to Augusta. Communication and transparency are keystones of an effective government. I have hosted informational meet and greets, written newspaper columns and letters to the editors, kept up a website and a Facebook page, and sent newsletters, electronic and paper, to help citizens stay aware of what’s happening at the State House.
When I knocked on doors and then took the oath of office to serve as state representative, I promised to push for legislation that would expand health care coverage, lift up working Maine families, support schools, improve broadband access, and provide meaningful property tax relief. There is so much more to do but I’m really proud of the work the 129th Legislature has accomplished.
In my time as a freshman legislator, I’ve attended many trainings and informational sessions on topics ranging from negotiation to early childhood education to aquaculture. Voters trusted me to use my two-year term wisely and I have. Now I’m asking them to let their investment in me pay off.
