I am writing to ask people to consider Terry Hayes for governor.
Hayes has a lot of experience as a mother, school board member, legislator and currently as state treasurer. As an independent she is not dedicated to any particular political party yet has working relationships with both.
Many people are looking for positive change, which I believe can only be achieved with experience. Positive change means different things to different people, good people who often disagree with one another, which is why an independent listener offers our best hope.
Hayes is a Clean Election candidate. This is not welfare for politicians, but a system that enables candidates to spend their time working for the people of Maine, not fundraising and making promises to the people who contribute, which happens in both Democratic and Republican parties.
Independence alone is not enough. We need someone with experience in the workings of state government, and Hayes has it.
