Political experience

Second term Selectman for Boothbay Harbor. I have worked at the federal level doing health policy in the Clinton and Bush administrations.

Why are you running for office?

I am running because we need common sense leaders in Augusta who can set aside partisan politics to ensure that our children, families and seniors have a better, more hopeful future. As an independent voice for Maine people, I will use my experience as a local and state-wide leader, small business person, physician, and policy expert to bring state leaders together to promote and build on Maine’s unique assets so people have more opportunities for a prosperous future.

My candidacy is focused on promoting policies that will ensure:
More jobs that provide year round employment;
Good education from schools and educational systems that are preparing our children and young adults for the diverse workforce that our businesses need;
Preserving Maine’s environment in ways that sustainably support our resource-based industries and protect our natural resources for future generations;
Ensuring access to affordable health care.

Maine can’t move forward if leaders in Augusta focus on blame and what’s wrong with our state. Our state leaders need to work together to support the vision and aspirations of talented, hard-working Mainers who can help us all build a forward-looking economy that provides good jobs while preserving the unique character of our communities. This approach of building on our unique assets is a core principle of our region’s Joint Economic Development Committee, which I Co-Chair. We need the same approach at the state level while ensuring that Maine provides the necessary supports so people have opportunities to succeed.
