A major issue affecting Mainers is long-term energy policy. Gov. Paul LePage and Republican supporters favor ever-greater reliance on fossil fuels and the international corporations that push them. House District 28 Rep. Heather Sirocki, R-Scarborough, is one of these fossil fuel champions who helped to narrowly defeat the well-crafted solar bill in the last legislative session.
I strongly support investing in alternative energy strategies for Maine homes and businesses. As a homeowner with clean solar electricity I know that it is a much cheaper way forward. Plus it has the critical bonus of combating climate change.
Democrat Chris Caiazzo is squarely in favor of energy independence for Maine. As an engineer who respects and understands the science, Chris calls for a rapid transition from 19th century fossil fuels to 21st century ready alternatives. It can and is being done. I’m voting for Chris to get it done here.
