Political experience

I have not been elected to political office before. Most of my leadership experience has been at the grassroots level, and I believe leadership should be shared as much as possible with folks who are competent and conscientious. I was chair of the Next Step Domestic Violence Project as it first formed and in its first year; co-chair of the Master Gardener Advisory Committee of Hancock County Extension, and co-chair for two terms on the Bucksport Provider Network Subcommittee, part of the Bucksport Bay Healthy Communities Coalition.

Why are you running for office?

I believe we must do what we can to respond to the issues that impact the quality of life in our homes, communities, state, nation, and planet. I have learned from both my volunteer and professional experiences and have developed skills to help create positive change. I want to take this experience to our state government, to help it better respond to the needs of its citizens all across the economic spectrum.
