I am thrilled to see that a small business owner is running for the state Legislature in House District 45. Kevin “KC” Hughes has been a small business owner for 35 years. He understands how to make payroll, solve problems, and knows you can’t spend money you don’t have. As a representative in Augusta, he will work to control spending and promote policies that help businesses and their employees create a better Maine for all. In a time of partisan politics, we need someone like Hughes who can work with both sides to find a compromise and build a stronger Maine.
