Committee assignments (if elected):


1) What legislation do you support, if any, to address the state’s opiate crisis?
Believe we need to stop the flow coming into Maine by increasing enforcement with stiffer penalties on traffickers, sellers and addicts. Expand educational programs.

2) What legislation do you support, if any, to address failures in the state’s child abuse prevention system?
Focus on protecting children with the “best interest of the child” while giving stiffer penalties to the abuser.

3) Should schools continue to push forward with proficiency-based diplomas? Why or why not?
Yes. Children need to be passed through grades based on what they have learned, and graduate based on that knowledge.


4) Are you in favor of some type of universal health care for Maine residents? Why, or why not?
All people should have access to quality health care. I do not believe workers who pay taxes should pay for those that do not/or have not worked

5) Do you support Question 1 (the 3.8% tax to fund the home care program)? Why, or why not?
No, I do not favor or support a surtax. I support one’s health insurance funding their home care.

6) Are you frustrated by the political sniping, exaggeration and even lies between the parties and their supporters that have threatened progress usually reached through respect and reasoned compromise? If so, what will you personally do to make the situation better?                                                                                       The political arena is at an all-time low in credibility, which I am disappointed in. I do not and will not lie, exaggerate, call names or threaten anyone. I seek common ground.

7) Tell voters something about yourself that they don’t already know, and might surprise them.
I am an Army brat, who has lived in many areas throughout the U.S., living in curfew-enforced towns and attending multi-cultural diverse schools.

Speed Round

Should voters be required to show ID at the polls?                                                Yes.
