Political experience

Currently I’m a member of the Sidney budget, cemetery and agriculture committees. While working for the National Guard I was not allowed to run for a partisan office. After retiring, I ran for this house seat in 2014.

Why are you running for office?

We need jobs that pay living wages, health care that is both affordable and ethical, and a Maine our children and grandchildren can be proud to call home. Today we live in a state with the worst economic recovery in New England; where childhood poverty and food insecurity are getting worse, not better. It doesn’t have to stay this way. How the state spends our tax money is about choices. Unfortunately, politicians in Augusta have been making some poor choices. During the 30 years I served in the Maine National Guard I learned a lot about problem solving and decision making. If elected, I will put that experience to work making better choices, in order to build a better future.
