Statement: I am running for the Maine Legislature to preserve and strengthen our coastal communities and way of life.
I want to make sure that if my children want to work on the water there will always be ways for them to do that, by protecting our environment and the sustainability of our marine resources.
I want to assure that future generations will be able to afford to live here and find solutions to support housing for our workforce and our families.
We must make education accessible and affordable for everyone.
I believe that part of building strong communities includes access to equitable health and reproductive care. I will always work to ensure we protect a woman’s right to choose and to protect the rights of marginalized communities across our district and our state.
