LIST OF ISSUES
Encouraging economic development that does not compromise the natural resources that are vital to our local fisheries and farms;
Guaranteeing state support for highways, ports, and other public infrastructure that is essential for a vibrant economy;
Civil & Human Rights
We believe in a democratic government that cherishes our Constitution, especially its guarantees of free speech, free exercise of religion, separation of church and state, and freedom from all forms of discrimination. The inherent dignity and the equal and inalienable rights of all human beings are the foundations of freedom, justice and peace in the world. The strength of our democracy rests on the rights and responsibilities set forth in the United States Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Democrats must continue their traditional leadership in championing the civil rights of all.
Achieving adequate state funding for public education, including pre-kindergarten;
Assuring access to affordable health insurance for all residents, including expanded MaineCare to assist those least able to afford coverage;
We must strive to be responsible stewards of the environment, our communities, and our planet. All people, including future generations, have the right to clean air, water, and a healthy natural environment.
Restoring tax fairness by reversing cuts in state revenue sharing for local communities that were enacted to give large tax cuts to high income taxpayers.
