Why are you running for office?

Community service has always been important to me. While in high school I served in the Maine National Guard. After graduation I enlisted in the Marine Corps and served 3 years. I have been a firefighter, an advanced EMT and a member of the Waterville City Council. I serve on the boards of several non-profit organizations and representing the people of Waterville is another, very important, part of community service.
