What is the most pressing problem in your district and what do you plan to do about it?

We must continue to create an environment that helps businesses create high paying jobs. In the Legislature I will continue to work toward lowering the cost of business and create a stable environment for businesses large and small.

Gov. Paul LePage wants to eliminate the state income tax. Do you support that? If not, why not?

I agree with Gov. LePage that we must eliminate the income tax. People deserve to keep the money they make. More money in citizens pockets means more money spent in our economy.

Are you willing to support raising the fuel tax to fix Maine roads? If not, why not?

I am not willing to raise the fuel tax. With the rise of electric and hybrid cars, combined with more efficient gasoline engines this tax increase will only be paid by those who can’t afford a newer model car. We must be more creative in our approach.

The relationship between the governor and the Legislature has deteriorated over the past six years. What can the Legislature do to improve that relationship?

The governor’s office as well as legislative leadership need to continue to come to the table no matter how tough the going gets. The people’s business is bigger that any one person in either branch of government. Put feelings aside and get to work.

What methods do you support to reduce opiate addiction in Maine?

Education among young people is key toward reducing opiate addiction in the future. We also must apprehend traffickers, not the end user. I support the administration in its efforts to dry up the illegal opiate market in our state.
