betsy sweet, clean elections candidate for governor

Let's get one thing out of the way right now:

If you're happy with the same old, same old in Maine politics; there are lots of other candidates for you. But, if you're looking for something different, take a look...

I'm a different kind of candidate.


A Bold Leader. Courage to Get the Job Done.

I reject special interest money. I am a Clean Elections Candidate. My loyalty is only to the people of Maine, not big donors, corporate PACs or wealthy lobbyists.

I fight for and win real progressive victories. As Governor, I'll fight for: Universal healthcare for every Mainer • Jobs that pay enough • Not one more penny on dirty energy for Maine • Tuition for Maine students in exchange for community service.

Small Business Owner. Advocate. Mom.

I work hard and I love the work I do. I have two businesses. I work two jobs. I have represented the voices of Maine people as an advocate at the legislature for decades.

But, my favorite job title is "Mom" to my three amazing daughters. Being a single mom with two jobs taught me a lot of great skills - and forced me to always remember what's most important: caring about each other, working hard, and always getting the job done.

Winning Back the Hearts of Mainers.

For a Democrat to win in 2018, We must do more than have a good set of policies. We must also speak to the hearts of voters. We must go beyond the labels, slick talking points and name calling to talk with people and meet them where they are. The reality of our day to day lives has to matter. That's what I do. That's who I am. That's why I can win the Blaine House back for the Democrats in 2018.
