Political experience

I have never held office, but I became politically active after I learned there were toxic chemicals in the charms my daughter and I used to make bracelets. I worked with the public and legislators to help pass the Kid’s Safe Products Act, which recently banned BPA from baby bottles and other children’s products. I have also learned how to work across party lines with legislators to address an issue that effects Maine families.

Why are you running for office?

For my children. I hope they and their peers will find work that is rewarding (both personally and financially) here in Maine. I believe we can create more opportunities for our youth here in the state our family loves by focusing on growing our small businesses, which have good growth potential, especially in high tech, to attract and retain our youth.
