As a disabled war-time veteran and former municipal manager, I have two major concerns with selecting the next governor.

I recently spoke with independent candidate Terry Hayes and she explained she would continue support to correct the situation with homeless veterans, as well as continue current programs to match veterans with jobs and careers, leveraging their military training and experience. She also told me she would work with Maine’s federal delegation to ensure veterans have access to quality, timely health care services in Maine.

Further, she told me a Hayes administration would fully fund local revenue sharing, which would increase non-property tax revenue for cities and towns, thus allowing better budgeting and planning at the local level.

I am excited about Terry Hayes’ independent candidacy and encourage fellow veterans and municipal officials to support her in November.
