Why are you running for office?

I am running for office to represent my hometown, the City of Presque Isle, to restore our voice and relevancy in Augusta. I will bring new ideas and perspective into this position and have the energy and determination to see these goals through. For too long our representation has been weak and unorganized and Aroostook County and Northern Maine have suffered for it. I believe that it is time for a change in leadership and in our representation and that I am a great candidate to do just that. I am committed to my town and my constituents and have served them as a first-responder in my position as a firefighter at the Presque Isle Fire Department since the day I turned 18. Additionally, I have served my constituents in Aroostook County through my work in Congressman Poliquin’s office for the past two years where I worked hard to make sure our veterans and seniors had access to the resources and are entitled to, and I hope to continue this work in the State Legislature.
As a recent graduate of the University of Maine (Summa Cum Laude) in 2016, I also served as the President of the Student Body where I represented almost 10,000 students. However, I am a “County Boy” at heart and returned home after graduation, unlike so many of my classmates, where I hope to revive the values I was instilled with of hard-work, respect and statesmanship back into our representation at the State House. It is my hope that with your help and support, I will be able to bring more jobs back to Aroostook County so that more of my classmates can return home, raise families of their own and have a prosperous and promising future.
