Different. Experienced. On Your Side.
Betsy Sweet for Governor
“Maine is full of smart, hard working people. It's time
they had a government that listens to them."
“We are focused on
changing Maine politics.”
Everything about electing Maine’s next Governor needs to change -- right here, right now. Maine needs to elect a Governor who works for us - not against us. I will work for us and I will work hard. Maine needs to elect a Governor who answers to regular Maine folks: YOU, ME, US. For thirty-five years I have been advocating in Augusta, “Under the Dome” to represent the voices of Mainers working to convince lawmakers to listen to those voices and use them to move Maine forward.
I am asking you to join me. We need to get money out of politics so we are working for “ordinary Maine people (who are extraordinary), not for big donors and their interests. I will not accept contributions from big donors, or PACS full of lobbyists’ money. Instead, I will knock on thousands of doors and enlist the support of Mainers. I am a clean elections candidate.
It’s time for real Maine values - hard work, common sense, and caring about our neighbors. That’s the real Maine. That’s who we are. That’s why I’m running for Governor. There will be many candidates to choose from. If you like the way things are, choose one of them. If you want something different, YOUR candidate just threw her hat into the ring.
