Political experience

This is my first run for an elected office. I have served as the campaign office manager for U.S. Senator Susan Collins and U.S. Senator Bill Cohen.

Why are you running for office?

I have served the judicial branch of our government for 16 years. I would be honored to now serve the people of Maine (and Falmouth) in the legislative branch. I am a native Mainer and I care deeply about our state. I wish to serve as a representative so that I can actively support and encourage the growth of Maine businesses. I want to protect our precious natural environment and preserve our traditional outdoor heritage. I want our children to have the best educational opportunities and to have the economic opportunity to remain in Maine. I believe our retirees should not have to change their residency in order to avoid state income tax. I believe we must care for most vulnerable citizens, our seniors, and our veterans. I wish to encourage continued reform in our welfare system. It is unacceptable to have our tax payers providing endless support to able-bodied people who are fully capable of gainful employment. I find fraud and abuse of government programs unacceptable. I am running for office because I would like to be in a position where I can advocate for all of these issue.
