Political experience

I have served one term in the Maine House of Representatives

Why are you running for office?

I am interested in creating policies that reduce or eliminate costly government overreach, particularly in the area of education. I would like to see fundamental changes made to the school funding formula so that scarce resources are distributed on a pupil need basis rather that geographical location and historical salary scales of affluent districts. I am keenly interested in seeing rural and unorganized portions of Maine receive some type of adequate compensation for the visual blight that has been thrust upon us so that urban southern New Englanders can feel good about carbon credits.
