South Portland & Cape Elizabeth
State Representative, District 32
Representing our district in the 126th and 127th legislatures has been a great honor, and I have had the opportunity to meet so many informed and passionate constituents and neighbors along the way. Your feedback has been invaluable, and your insight has helped me do my job better. Thank you.
I ran for office because I care about so many important issues -- education, economic development, our environment, closing the inequality gap, ensuring access to health care.
I believe today's students are tomorrow's workforce, and we should fully fund education to give our schools, teachers, and students the tools they need to thrive. We owe it to our future economy to deliver a highly trained labor pool, and that starts with the decisions we make today.
I believe an honest day's work deserves and honest paycheck. In the 126th legislature I introduced a bill to increase Maine's minimum wage, which hasn't been adjusted in over a half decade.
I believe an agriculturally rich state like Maine has the means to address and eradicate hunger. How can a kid learn or an adult work on an empty stomach? Addressing food insecurity is fundamental to everything else we do, from education to workforce development. With farms in every corner of the state - and hungry Mainers in every community - the solution is in our hands.
Quality education, fair wages, a clean environment, a fair tax structure, and reliable access to food for every Mainer. These should be top priorities for our state, and issues I will continue fighting for day in and day out in my next term.
But I need your help. I would appreciate your support on Election Day , as well as a contribution the Maine Clean Elections Fund in my name to help me qualify for public financing.
As always, please let me know if I can help with any issues you may have, if you would like to discuss current or pending legislation, or if you would just like to connect.
