1) Define what “success” would look like if you are elected to serve your district.
To me, a successful legislative session would be one that ends with major progress being made in the following areas: increasing access to affordable, quality health care, including mental health care and substance abuse treatment; lowering housing costs and increasing the supply of affordable housing; keeping the state on a course to lower greenhouse gas emissions; making the state as a whole and its individual municipalities more prepared for the coming changes to our climate; and stabilizing or increasing state support for public education and municipal revenue sharing.

Additionally, gains should be made in making state government more accessible and responsive to the people of Maine. And all this should be done without raising taxes and partisan bickering.

2) Characterize your view on public access to governmental business.
Broadly speaking, governmental business is the people’s business. In most circumstances, unless harm could come to someone by making things public, then government meetings, correspondence and other business should be available to the public.
