Mayor of Lewiston
Stewardship, common sense, a sense of reality and the ability to recognize misplaced compassion are characteristics vital to insure the success of individuals and businesses. Lacking these characteristics will make one a truly successful legislator.
They will be heralded for their courage and insight, called a champion of the people and a forward thinker. This heaped upon them by party leaders, special interest groups and the media. But the common-sense individuals and businesses that labor daily to just get by will curse those policy makers in Washington and Augusta whose progressive thoughts continually decrease the fruits of the working man’s (and woman’s) labor. They will sacrifice the working person’s well being in order to gain the support of special interest groups.
