Communication, collective problem solving, active listening (constituents and all people want to be heard). I work as a health care provider and my daily work requires me to be an active listener, to meet the patient where they are and look for opportunities for change. I feel strongly leaders need to be active listeners and engage with their constituents.
Now and under "normal circumstances" an economy that works for all is a secure economy. I support smart energy policy reform for Maine to lower utility bill energy costs. I support workforce training so students in Maine can learn skills they would need to stay and work in Maine. I support increasing revenue sharing to Maine towns to relive property tax payer’s bills. I support affordable health care so more Mainers do not choose between food and medication. We are in unprecedented times so the short term requires Maine to maximize federal government support: an increase in the federal governments share of Medicare payments, this adjusts with economic conditions and when unemployment is high. Maine needs more fiscal relief from an extended or flexible COVID 19 relief fund as our state relies so heavily on tourism. Business's enrollment in the WorkShare Program could benefit the shortfall in unemployment especially with the July 31st federal economic relief program ending.
