Q&A

1) What legislation do you support, if any, to address the state’s opiate crisis?

Full disclosure (side effects/addiction onset/withdrawal symptoms) both verbal/written signed documentation with provider and patient showing consent or refusal for any addictive drugs prescribed.

2) What legislation do you support, if any, to address failures in the state’s child abuse prevention system?

Providing funding to fill the positions that have been left unfilled due to pillaging of the funding by Augusta. We cannot provide safety for our kids if there are not enough bodies to look after them.

3) Should schools continue to push forward with proficiency-based diplomas? Why or why not?

Proficiency-based education works for some, but not for all. Many educators and families have been unhappy with this program. I feel that we should base our decisions on their input.

4) Are you in favor of some type of universal health care for Maine residents? Why, or why not?

Yes, I believe that if we had some type of universal health-care system for Maine residents that not only would they be healthier, hospitals would benefit from the ability for them to be paid.

5) Do you support Question 1 (the 3.8% tax to fund the home care program)? Why, or why not?

I support home care but I am unsure if this is the best way to fund it. Veterans, seniors, disabled individuals all desperately need care. When elected I will pursue other funding ideas.

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?

One of the top reasons that I am running for office is my frustration with the infighting issue. When elected I will work to unite our leadership for the good of our state and its people.

7) Tell voters something about yourself that they don’t already know, and might surprise them.

My son passed away a year and a half ago due to suicide. Improving our state’s residents’ access to general health and mental health services is very important to me.
