Political experience

State Senator from Lincoln County since February 2012. I have served as Chair of the Marine Resource Committee and Government Oversight Committee, and as member of Education, Government Oversight, and Judiciary committees.
Elected to the Sheepscot Valley RSU#12 Board, 2009, 2012, and 2015.

Why are you running for office?

In Maine too many people are struggling to make ends meet, too many young people are leaving to find better opportunity, and too many children and seniors live in poverty. We can – and must – do better. We need to build on Maine’s strengths and create infrastructure to support growth in farming, fishing, boat building, clean energy generation, broadband and other technology-based jobs. We need to ensure our local downtowns can foster a real sense of community, and that young families can afford a decent home, quality affordable childcare and know their children will receive a good education. I believe in that future, and I believe we can achieve it through vision, sound economic plans, and working together. Elections don’t fix problems. But electing people who have vision, make plans, and have a proven record of working hard to solve problems for Maine people by working with others is the way to get things done. I am seeking re-election to continue that work.
