Whom we elect matters when it comes to creating opportunity for everyone in Maine. As a young Mainer and small business owner I feel it’s important that my representatives in Augusta are unencumbered by the weight of special-interest money. Maine’s Clean Elections Initiative does just that. It means $5 qualifying contributions and local volunteers fuel candidates’ campaigns, not special-interest money.

People-powered campaigns keep the issues concerning ordinary Mainers at the center of elections where they belong. But we are seeing more big money in politics, and less transparency. Now is the time to take action. That’s why I volunteered at the polls on Election Day, and continue to advocate for the Clean Elections Initiative. I invite you to join me in fighting for a stronger, transparent and more representative politics.
