    “Piscataquis County is ready for growth. It will not likely arrive as a Private Prison in Milo or a Resort in Brownville. As a community, we have expended much energy, time and tax payer’s money on looking outside our county for the economic cure that has not arrived. I say look inward to the successful small businessmen who are the foundation of our local economy. They have the answers in their success. One job at a time.”

2. Taxation:

    “Taxes are payment for services rendered. The question is are we as rural Maine citizens getting the best bang for our buck, There is no free meal and never has been. Every dollar your government spends comes from our collective wallets. We can do better.”

Community Service:

Don has been a member of the MSAD 41 Board of Directors for the past 9 years serving the last seven as the Board Chair. He has helped maintain budgets that are lean, affordable and meet the needs of our children.

Of more importance, this sharing of resources will present, expanding opportunities for our children.

He has been a strong advocate of small rural schools fighting to maintain the viability of all of our schools in the District. “Our schools are the heart and soul of our communities.“

He served for several years as an EMT for Three Rivers Ambulance enjoying this opportunity to serve the public.

His experience as a small business owner has taught him the value of a dollar and the need to stay with a budget that is affordable. He has the ability to make the tough financial choices that will be necessary. Don currently serves as the treasurer of one of Piscatquis county s oldest stock clubs.
