Maine needs to promote jobs so that our younger generations can have careers coming out of college and pay into our tax base so that we can have more funds to support our senior citizens people who need help.
Yes, I believe that as a citizen of Maine you should pay for what you want to buy and not have to pay to go to work. This will be one more great thing to help promote business
One of the toughest things about legalizing marijuana will be our police forces ability to enforce people who are Driving Under the Influence. Legalizing marijuana would also make it more accessible to our underage children.
No, taxing wealthy business owners will not solve the core problems of our education system. This will drive more business owners out of Maine due to our already extremely high tax rates and will make it even more difficult to attract new business. This tax would put us among the top in the country for high tax rates at this bracket.
No, this New York City style gun control bill put forward by Bloomberg will be one more foot in the door for out of state interest groups trying to regulate our guns and weaken our second amendment rights.
No, although I believe our minimum wage rate is too low, I don't not think that raising it to $12 will solve our problem.

No, the major reason being that our Attorney General has ruled this Unconstitutional.
Prevention should be our major focus.

Candidate did not answer this question.
I would need more information on cost, location, and money distribution.
The two biggest barriers we have in Maine that prevents business are, our excessive regulations and our high tax rates. We need to introduce and support legislation that cuts taxes, reduces regulations and lowers energy costs
Lower taxes and promote business. If we can get students working right out of college we will retain people who choose to educate themselves in Maine and will attract other businesses and families to enter the state.
Promoting business in Maine is one of the most important and pressing issue we have. If we bring more business into the state then we will attract and retain young people to work in Maine, expand our tax base, which will allow us to better fund education, help our veterans, our elderly, and our disabled while boosting Maine's struggling economy.
