I’m an avid hunter and conservationist. I’m passionate about entrepreneurship and job creation. I had a great experience building a business in Maine and want to help others do the same. I think that Maine has an unfair reputation as a bad place to do business, and that this is kind of a self-fulfilling prophecy which is not really deserved. As Biddeford’s representative to the House, I try to bring that perspective and to work to support our continued growth and success.
I’m especially passionate about this issue of expanding Medicaid – I think it’s a travesty that we haven’t done this. I have a constituent who is a per diem firefighter with a 15 year old son. He makes too much money to be covered by MaineCare and not enough to purchase it himself. It’s just unfair, and it’s bad economics too.
I also host a podcast for Maine entrepreneurs called The Grow Maine Show.
