Political experience

Waterville City Council, 2006-2009
State Representative, 2008-present

Why are you running for office?

We need leaders who in Augusta who will solve problems and treat others with respect. That leadership is lacking, that’s why I am running and ask for your vote on November 8th.

100 years ago, my family came to central Maine and started a roofing company that is still open today off College Avenue in Waterville. They worked hard and we need more support for employers and workers. That’s why I wrote several bipartisan laws to help small business. I also voted for cheaper energy options for large employers like Sappi and Huhtamaki, and for growing the clean renewable energy industry.

I will be a more effective State Senator who can tackle complicated issues. I will be an independent thinker who will stand up to my own party when it’s right, just like I did on funding for KVCC or job search requirements in welfare programs.
