Political experience

I have no direct political experience but have been a voice for children and families at the legislature and with our Congressional delegation over my 17 year career as the president and CEO of the Maine Children’s Alliance.

Why are you running for office?

I decided to run for a House seat because I believe that I can make a difference. I believe state government is going in the wrong direction by reducing services to young children, not investing in alternative energy, not expanding health care to the thousands who are not currently eligible and not supporting the minimum policies that would actually advance economic development.
I’ve been an advocate for Maine’s children and families all my adult life and decided that it was time to advocate for my community in Augusta.
