Political experience

I was active in the Elmira College Republicans during college and served two years as Vice-Chair of the group. I have been active in politics since returning to Maine, working on the Eliot Cutler campaign in 2014, and I currently am employed as the Coalition Coordinator for the Committee for Ranked Choice Voting. I am also an active member of the Portland Republican City Committee, Citizens Climate Lobby’s Portland chapter, and the New Leaders Council of Maine. This is my first run for public office.

Why are you running for office?

I am running for office to give Portland voters a real choice in November. Our city is the fastest growing community in Maine, and in order to continue growing, we need a pragmatic approach to the problems facing our state. If elected, I would focus on crafting realistic solutions to the very real problems facing Mainers.
