Declaration of Independents

 

First, I put the public interest ahead of any partisan or special interest.
Government should represent “We, the people”—not the party leaders or those who can buy access to power. As an independent, I believe good governance is about rising above petty partisanship and putting the people first.

 

Second, I will use common sense and find common ground to solve problems.
I reject today’s zero sum politics and desire to work together with Democrats and Republicans in an inclusive and civil manner to get things done. As an independent, I will strive to understand different perspectives, follow the facts, identify root causes, offer new ideas, and make logical decisions.

 

Third, I will stand for the timeless values of opportunity, equality, and stewardship.
I want to empower every Mainer to realize their full potential, uphold equal rights for all under the law, and ultimately leave a stronger state for the next generation. As an independent believe in both fiscal and environmental responsibility.

 

Fourth, I will foster competition, transparency, and accountability in politics.
I seek to rebuild Mainers’ trust in government by holding ourselves to the highest standards of honor and honesty and by fixing the broken incentives that contribute to political dysfunction. As an independent, I support reforms to ensure our political process truly represents the people—including the way we implement citizen initiatives, fund campaigns, and run elections.

 

Fifth, I believe in the shared responsibility of civic engagement.
As Mainers, we understand it is our civic duty to be informed and engaged on important issues. As an independent, I encourage increased citizen participation in our political process and in service to our country.
