I witnessed Rep. Tavis Hasenfus as a member of a legislative committee instill a common-sense approach in debating the merits of a bill to establish the Maine Space Corp. to engage Maine in the global new space economy.

Like most committee members, Tavis was intrigued by the concept of the corporation and the economic opportunities it would lead to but wanted to make sure the state would not be saddled with financially supporting the corporation and that the corporation was the best vehicle to achieve the bill’s objectives. With his help, the bill passed the committee and was signed into law by the governor.

Tavis is an even-keeled individual who votes on the merits of topics and will vote against bills that come before him that do not make sense for his constituents and the state.

I will vote to re-elect Tavis Hasenfus as my representative.
