Inequitable wealth distribution. We have too many people working full time at important jobs (CNA’s, food service workers, many in education) that are living pay check to pay check. At the same time there are others who have so much money that its value is not in improving their lives, but elevating their power and prestige.
Social Justice, Veterans Issues, and Transportation. I am a veteran and will continue to make veteran issues a priority. I submitted a bill to expand Maine's Veterans Treatment Courts which led me to learn more about the Drug and Co-occuring Courts. This has led me to get more involved in social justice issues. I sit on the Transportation Committee. Transportation, or lack of, is also a social justice and veteran issue. It also effects access to healthcare, employment, green house gases and so much more.
I am active in the community, myself. I interact with town manager and city manager in my district and share openings in committee and board positions on my social media. When constituents contact me about any issue, whether we agree or not, I praise them for getting involved and writing me.
I see the changes that Covid19 has brought about as opportunities. People are spending more time with family, cooking and gardening at home, and eagerly supporting local businesses. I think there are great opportunities there. I will be (as I always have) encouraging people to start new or grow local and small businesses. We have programs in our library to our Chamber of Commerce to help. I also believe people recognize the importance of our essential workers who are often earning lower pay. I will be pushing for better wages. I think improving our quality of life is as important as our economy.
