Political experience

2 terms Auburn City Council, 3 terms as your State Representative

Why are you running for office?

After growing up in Auburn and witnessing the changes that have occurred and the property taxes rise out of control, I decided in 2005 I could make a difference. 2 terms on the City Council and 3 terms later in the Maine House I believe I have made a difference for the residents of Auburn. I have listened and will continue to listen to all the people I represent. As a member of the Taxation Committee I was able to reach across the aisle and get meaningful tax reform in 2010 and again in 2014. I do not pretend to have all the answers. I represent you whether you are Republican, Democrat, Green, Libertarian, or unenrolled. It’s not about the party. It’s about the people.
