Continuing our economic recovery while keeping people healthy and safe, and how to balance the two. We will be facing a budget gap we will need find ways to close, without harming those already struggling.

Healthcare and health insurance are still too expensive for too many, and access to healthcare, especially in rural areas, is inadequate.

Seniors are struggling to stay in their homes, free of exploitation and abuse, and many are unable to pay the ever-increasing property taxes.

Maine has the highest rate of food insecurity in New England.

Coastal erosion is decimating our communities and threatening our way of life.
1. Help Seniors stay in their homes, pay their property taxes and be free from exploitation and abuse.

2. Expand access to affordable healthcare.

3. Fight food insecurity in our community.
Lead by example. I am very involved in the community and encourage all to vote and participate in our elections.
Our economy is suffering from the economic downturn caused by the ongoing pandemic. We need to continue providing assistance to our local small businesses to support them through these tough times. One item I will push for is rental assistance for small businesses. Although I applaud our State’s efforts to provide residential rental assistance, many of our small businesses lease their business location space or their equipment and need assistance to make those payments or face possible closure.

We need to continue the grant programs currently in place, and insure they are not unduly burdensome or complicated to apply for, while insuring the program’s integrity.

I would also advocate for State programs that infuse money into the local economy, while at the same time helping our neighbors in need, similar to the Federal USDA Farmers to Family food box program I have been involved with.
