One reason I'm a Green Independent is that I am sincerely committed to reaching across partisan divides to make Maine work better for everyone. I look forward to helping Democrats, Republicans and Greens advance many of the good ideas in their parties' political platforms.
I want everyone to know that I do not feel pressure to vote along party lines or to promote any particular party platform in its entirety. I do carefully consider what the parties are trying to accomplish, and I'll do my best to advance shared goals that are good for everyone. But I do my own research on every issue and cast my vote according to my best judgement after hearing from all sides.
