On the campaign trail with Paula Sutton
This is going to be a compilation of stories, events and the people I meet along the campaign trail in my bid for a seat in the Maine State Senate District 12 in Knox County .
So far I have had a 94% positive success rate knocking on doors and have enjoyed hearing what people have to say and which topics are important to them. The top three issues that I have been hearing about are welfare reform, the complexities of trying to conduct business in Maine and property tax increases.
It is amazing and humbling to be invited into a strangers home and sit at the kitchen table. People are very open and willing to share their thoughts and experiences and I am learning so much and having a great time. Some things are disturbing too and I have heard more than once that people are being advised to get divorced in order to obtain more benefits .
One lady I spoke with is on disability with a fixed income of about 880.00 per month and cares for her husband at home . This lady is a Democrat who pledged to vote for me. WHY? Because her Obamacare bill is so high (over half her monthly income) that she cannot afford it and is being fined as a result.
