Why are you running for office?

My 21 years of experience as an elected municipal official led me to run for state office. There is a serious disconnect between what goes on in The State House and what is happening at home. I felt I could bridge that gap and I have tried over the past 4 years to use my experience and knowledge to support the passage of legislation that would positively impact Sanford residents, particularly in the area of property tax relief, workforce and skills training and education funding. When municipal revenue sharing and funding for special Ed was reduced, our homeowners felt that directly in an increase in property taxes. And, while there are jobs available in our area, those jobs require a higher skill level. I will continue to focus on finding ways to provide training and education for those under and unemployed workers who need it.
