I would expand Mainecare coverage under the Affordable Care Act.
I support any effort that will reduce property tax.
Unfortunately marijuana is already here in the State. So it is time we control it and tax it.
I believe this petition as written is unconstitutional. It by-passes the legislature in allocating state tax dollars to the school budget without going through the Appropriations. I took a pledge to support and uphold the Maine constitution. Voting for this citizen petition would violate that oath.
I believe this ballot question as written is unconstitutional. The Maine Constitution says Maine citizens have the right to bear arms and this right shall never be questioned. I took a pledge to support and uphold the Maine constitution. Voting for this citizen petition would violate that oath.
The minimum wage should be increased to $10 per hour not $12. I pay $10 per hour to my employees that work at my small antique shop. Additionally, there needs to be a seasonal wage and a training wage. This petition does not have provisions for these two wages.
I believe this ballot question as written is unconstitutional. The Maine Constitution identifies an election winner as the one that gathers the most of votes. I took a pledge to support and uphold the Maine constitution. Voting for this ballot question would violate that oath.
It cannot be one or the other. We can defeat the substance abuse crisis by using enforcement, treatment, counseling and education.
Yes it is the proper size. If the size is reduced rural Maine will voice will be lost in Augusta.
No the pay should not be increase. In fact it should be decreased.

No. This should be part of any collective bargaining agreement.
I would support this ballot question if and only if the harness racing industry and agricultural fairs benefit from the additional casino income.
Energy costs. We need to look at the cost to deliver energy: Transmission and Distribution cost. We need to understand why they are so high. Additionally we need remove any barriers to the development of micro electrical grids that could be developed around biomass electric generating plants in rural areas.
Immigration efforts can help. But we also need to work to bring our kids back home. This can be done by reducing our energy costs and encouraging more manufacturing to stay in and come to Maine.
