Challenge Mainers to succeed by providing a free college education for all Maine’s students who agree to live in-state for five years following graduation. Force the state government to pay 55% of all public school funding as promised years ago.

Fight abuse of taxpayer dollars and cut job-killing red tape for hardworking people by closing tax loopholes for billionaires. Stop legislative foot-dragging on marijuana to create good jobs and earn taxes from new businesses.
