I strongly support Republican Kevin Hughes for state representative in House District 45. He has the right temperament for these trying times in Maine, exemplified by our Legislature’s divisiveness. To reduce that, he has made it very clear he will engage with legislators holding opposing views. Successful legislators learn to listen, determining where common ground exists.

Hughes will listen, then work hard to achieve beneficial and responsible legislation, carefully considering the costs his constituents could face. His business experience taught him that sometimes the cost is not bearable, or the proposal is not a priority and must be rejected as irresponsible. Hughes will bring a reasonable, responsible philosophy, not a rigid ideology to Augusta.
