Q&A

Define what “success” would look like if you are elected to serve your district.
Success would include being accessible and accountable to voters. Keeping town taxes low and listening to all sides of each issue and making sure any legislation helps Mainers. Success would also mean protecting our natural resources and making sure schools get their funding.

Characterize your view on public access to governmental business.
Being honest, fair and making clear decisions and I would bring this attitude to Augusta. It’s the issues not political parties. That is one of the reasons I am independent.
