Thank you so much for your thoughtful questions! As usual, I would always rather stay and spend my time connecting with you here, however, my campaign manager is telling me it’s time to do other things. Please check out my website and social media pages, I look forward to talking with you there!
I am a life-long activist, political organizer, small business owner and mother living in Hallowell, Maine. I am a progressive Democrat running for U.S. Senate, seeking to unseat Republican incumbent Susan Collins.
Mainers and all Americans deserve leaders who will put people before party and profit. I am not taking a dime of corporate or dark money during this campaign. I will be beholden to you.
I support a Green New Deal, Medicare for All and eliminating student debt.
As the granddaughter of a lobsterman, the daughter of a middle school math teacher and a foodservice manager, and a single mom of three, I know the challenges of working-class Mainers firsthand.
I also have more professional experience than any other candidate in this Democratic primary.
I helped create the first Clean Elections System in the country right here in Maine because I saw the corrupting influence of money in politics and policymaking and decided to do something about it. I ran as a Clean Elections candidate for governor in 2018 — the only Democratic candidate in the race to do so. I have pledged to refuse all corporate PAC and dirty money in this race, and I fuel my campaign with small-dollar donations and a growing grassroots network of everyday Mainers.
My nearly 40 years of advocacy accomplishments include:
Writing and helping pass the first Family Medical Leave Act in the country
Creating the first Clean Elections system in the country
Working on every Maine State Budget for 37 years
Serving as executive director of the Maine Women’s Lobby
Serving as program coordinator for the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom
Serving as Commissioner for Women under Governors Brennan and McKernan
Co-founding the Maine Center for Economic Policy and the Dirigo Alliance Founding and running my own small advocacy business, Moose Ridge Associates.
Co-founding the Civil Rights Team Project, an anti-bullying program currently taught in 400 schools across the state.
I am also a trainer of sexual harassment prevention for businesses, agencies and schools.
I am proud to have the endorsements of Justice Democrats, Brand New Congress, Democracy For America, Progressive Democrats for America, Women for Justice – Northeast, Blue America and Forward Thinking Democracy.
