News Room

This is where I’ll be sharing campaign news and upcoming events.


  • Maine Conservation Voters Action Fund has endorsed your candidacy for the 129th Legislature.  And I am grateful and proud to have these fine organizations endorse my campaign.    

  • I have been endorsed by the Maine State Employees Association and the Maine AFL/CIO. More coming soon.

  • The past few days have been brutal in terms of weather-humid, hot and occasionally drenching. Several times, I was ready to set off and knock on doors, but didn’t. Why? Because I put myself in the shoes of people behind those doors, asking myself, ‘If I’m hot, sweaty and feeling wrung out, would I want to talk politics?’ Many running for office might disagree with staying home, but the more Read More …

  • I haven’t posted recently because Beth and I have put most of our energy into campaigning. We’ve met more than 150 residents in Cambridge and are now meeting folks in Ripley. Quick observations. 1-Everyone seems eager to be heard, whether they’re Dems, independents or Republicans. It seems that conversations with conservative voters are longer and they seem to be eager to voice concerns. Even the most ardent 2nd amendment supporters Read More …

  • Now that we have signs and a way of creating street lists, Beth and I are spending time several afternoons every week, knocking on doors and meeting voters. Contacting 7,000 people between June and early November is easy peasy…Right? This was the part I was most hesitant about, but it’s really rewarding and eye-opening listening to what really matters to citizens in Somerset County. We’re alternating between Palmyra and Cambridge Read More …

Her call was in regards to a pretty strong odor problem her parents were experiencing that originated in the Hartland landfill behind their house. When I brought my Clean Election contribution forms to be validated by the town clerk, I took a few minutes to talk the issue over with Chris Littlefield, our Read More …

  • Come join the fun at the Somerset Middle School in Hartland this Saturday. It runs from 10:30 to 1. Kids will get to talk to a fireman, a state trooper and a game warden. Other activities include enjoying an author reading, acting in a play, plant seeds, learn to be smart about money and several other fun activities. There will be a number of learning stations, a free eye screening Read More …

  • The Friends group offered a program on human trafficking last Thursday. Since it was poorly attended, I’ve done a summary as my regular post today at Maine Crime Writers. Please share with those you think should be aware. https://mainecrimewriters.com/2018/03/28/the-brutality-of-reality/

  • I have been invited to attend. Wednesday March 28, 2018 The Skowhegan Area Chamber of Commerce will be hosting its Meet the Reps event. This will be at T&B’s Celebration Center at 414 Madison Avenue, Skowhegan from 5:30 – 7:00 p.m.

  • Waterville March For Our Lives Waterville City Hall One Common Street Waterville, ME 04901 We are holding a candlelight vigil in memory of all those who have lost their lives as a result of mass shooting and gun violence. We will call out those trying to maintain the hold on members of Congress who are owned by a powerful gun lobby and refuse to enact even simple sensible gun legislation. Read More …
