Why are you running for office?

I am running for office to support a better standard of living and improve the quality of life for families and individuals. I am running to be a voice for courage, commitment, vision, urgency, and leadership in the Maine Senate, for vigorously dealing with the important issues that face us. I am running to continue my leadership in driving protections of our electric power grid from long term blackouts, which would assure societal safety and attract the important businesses that seek power reliability and offer good jobs. I am running to defend average people against special interest greed that leave them behind, promote transparency, prevention, wellness and affordability in health, safety, and addiction issues, and prioritize needy children, elderly, and veterans.
