Define what “success” would look like if you are elected to serve your district.
Local concerns for Litchfield, Monmouth and Wales include: 1) Addressing PFAS-contaminated groundwater in North Monmouth and arsenic-contaminated wells throughout the towns so that every home has affordable access to safe drinking water; 2) Solving the liability concerns that prevent local recycling and salvaging of materials from the transfer station that increase municipal disposal costs; 3) Holding CMP accountable for increased costs and poor customer satisfaction; and 4) Protecting Maine elections from foreign influence.

As a lifelong independent, I’ll be a legislator who shows up, does the hard work on the local issues, and listens to constituents without regard to partisanship.

Characterize your view on public access to governmental business.
