Why are you running for office? To represent the people of my district.
126th House of Representatives. Long time planning board member (Sanford)
The federal health care law has offered to pay states to expand their Medicaid programs to provide health coverage to low income Mainers. Do you support Medicaid (or MaineCare) expansion?Yes
By expanding Medicaid we not only help low income Mainers we also increase the number of medical personnel involved in the process.
Reform of the state’s public assistance programs has been the focus of debates in the State House and on the campaign trail. Do you believe that the state’s welfare programs are too generous?No
What, if anything, would you change about welfare?Nothing.
Do you support raising the state’s minimum wage from $7.50 an hour?Yes
By how much?To a minimum of $12/hr. This barely covers the cost of living!
Would you support legalization of marijuana?Yes
Please explain your position on legalization?Legalization would allow for wholesale growers and retail sales at dispensaries. It would also increase the tax base.
