I absolutely refuse to waste my one precious vote on playing politics. Don’t tell me to vote along party lines. Don’t tell me to vote for the wrong guy to get another guy out. Don’t tell me I’m splitting my vote (instead, let’s combine votes).

There is only one candidate for governor whose values align with mine, whose vision is clear and change-producing, and that’s independent Eliot Cutler.

Compare Eliot’s record and plan for education, economic growth, health care, gun rights, equality, the environment and women’s issues with those of the other candidates and see if you don’t agree.

We deserve more than four years of mediocrity born out of fear. Please join me in voting for what’s best for Maine.
