Message from the Candidate

/Why run?

I believe in public service. I’ve spent the majority of my adult life in service to this country and to my community. When we moved to Maine, we found where we truly belong: a state with beautiful country and amazing, self-reliant people, who deserve better than party-driven politics.

 

Serving my friends and neighbors in the Legislature would be a great honor, and I will not let you down.

Inner liberty depends upon being exempt from domination of things as well as from domination of people. … This is our constant problem—how to live with people and remain free, how to live with things and remain independent.

- Abraham Joshua Heschel -

Core Positions

/What I Believe

STATE ECONOMY

Waldo County needs growth.  Our corner of the county is ripe with possibilities.  We need to remove government obstacles to business while protecting the natural beauty of our land.

JUSTICE

I believe in restorative justice, diversion programs for most non-violent offenses.  We can make the most of our system to rehabilitate back into productive citizenry.  We need to tackle our opioid crisis to protect our children and our future.
I want justice for victim, accused, and convicted…every individual’s rights must be protected.

EDUCATION

I believe in local control of education.  I believe parents must have more say in their children’s education than anyone else, especially government.  I am against Common Core.  I believe in working with local school boards, parents, and taxpayers to form the best plans for our children’s education.

I can personally speak to Brian’s intellect and thoughtfulness (something so lacking in much political debate these days), not only in his writing ... but in our correspondence over the years.
