Top three priorities if elected:
Education — I support the Maine curriculum frameworks and the learning results. Much work still needs to be done.
Property tax relief — there has to be a better solution for poorer communities.
Road infrastructure — highways, especially U.S. Route 1, need to be examined if we are to continue promoting tourism in our beautiful state.
