Political experience

Member of the Gorham Economic Development Council for seven years. Volunteer Coordinator for a Congressional campaign. Chairman of the Gorham Republican Committee.

Why are you running for office?

I feel that the majority of my constituents have not been adequately represented at the Representative level in Augusta. I am not a “career politician” and believe in a citizens’ legislature. We face some serious challenges and need to focus on finding solutions rather than playing partisan politics. I will bring 30 years of successful management experience along with common sense, real-world solutions to Augusta in representing the people of Gorham and Scarborough. My wife and I raised three sons to adulthood in Gorham and have experienced the kind of problems and challenges as those who I want to represent.
