Why are you running for office?

I still believe in the American dream. If a person works hard and plays by the rules they will be able to get ahead. The factories and mills where my grandfather worked provided families with decent jobs and opportunity to provide for future. Now they are closed. Today we are struggling as a state partly due to a lack of good paying jobs and many of our children have left the state in search of more favorable economic climates. I am running because I love our state and I want to make sure that this generation and generations to come have the same freedoms and opportunities I had growing up here. I wish to help create a more jobs friendly environment so that our children can come back home and be in a more favorable positon to provide for themselves and their families. We have an aging demographic and for our future success, it is vital that we find new and better ways to attract young families to our state and also to retain our precious youth. We need to focus on the issues we have direct control over.
In Augusta I will work to reduce waste and duplication of services, promote sustainable fiscal policies, and foster more government transparency. We must prioritize spending and be diligent in our efforts to first and properly take care of our most vulnerable citizens. I may not have all the answers but the people of Maine do and I am listening.
