1) Define what “success” would look like if you are elected to serve your district.
Success to me would be to have the residence of Burnham, Clinton, Pittsfield and Troy know that their voice is heard in the state government.

Success to me would be to have those who live within the boundaries of House District 68 know who that state representative is and that they know how to get in touch with me when they need assistance.

Success to me would be if we showed the rest of the country what can be accomplished by working together.

Success to me would be to bring back the saying, “As goes Maine so goes the nation.” What we accomplish by working together should and will make us the envy of each and every state in the USA.

2) Characterize your view on public access to governmental business.
We need to do everything possible to make it easy for Mainers to take part in their government. It is very difficult for people to attend committee meetings. We must change that. People must know who their Representative is in order to contact them to get answers on Committee meetings and so forth.
