Why are you running for office?

I live in the Penobscot River Valley where all of the paper mills have now closed. When the last mill closed in Old Town, I decided it was time to offer a new voice to the voters in the region, a voice who would concentrate on economic development. We need to create a governmental environment for business that promotes business, not one that deters business. Tax and spend policies drive business away. We must reduce the tax burden on individuals and businesses to encourage economic growth in Maine. Likewise, we must also reduce the regulatory impact on economic development as well as energy costs.
