During the national political debate we have been watching for over a year now, we have heard many candidates and pundits stress the importance of small businesses as drivers of the economy. This is especially true in Maine’s tourism economy. Restaurants, mom-and-pop shops, and agriculture all play an important role in our state’s job market. We have an opportunity in Yarmouth to elect someone who understands the unique needs of small business owners and those who work for them. Mark Hough has been on the front lines for a long time and can be counted on to represent job creators. We need jobs. We should elect Mark Hough to the state House in District 107.
