Reason for running: I am fed up with the direction in which the state of Maine is heading .We must control spending, and we have to begin to grow Maine. We need good jobs for our citizens, equitable taxation policies and a pro-business environment. We are witnessing the slow death of our private sector, and that is not sustainable.

Family: Married; two cats and a puppy

Occupation: Health Link director, Maine Coast Memorial Hospital

Experience: State representative, 123rd Legislature

Reason for running: I’m running to continue my effort to grow our economy while maintaining our quality of place. House members of the 123rd Legislature passed an income tax reform bill providing significant help to most Mainers. The bill failed in the Senate. I wish to help overcome the remaining obstacles so that Mainers get the income tax relief they desire and deserve.
