Crystal Robinson has the vision and non-partisan work ethic needed to correct the course Maine is currently on. She believes Maine can thrive while preserving its natural beauty and rich resources. Firmly rooted in common sense and directed by the Constitution, Crystal’s strategies are simple: limit government, restore personal responsibility, respect one another and the environment.

While fully supporting clean energy, she urges a closer look at the reality of using wind and solar by asking: How will solar panels be recycled when there isn’t a single recycling plant for panels and the batteries in all of New England? If 675 acres in Warren are needed to provide electricity to 18,000 homes, is it wise to sacrifice more land to power electric vehicles and install heat pumps?

I want someone in Augusta who is posing these questions and listening for solutions from her community. I’m voting for Crystal Robinson.
