I am pleased that Adam Lachman is running again for a seat on Rockland’s city council. I enthusiastically supported his candidacy three years ago and look forward to doing so again this November.

Rockland has many pressing problems that require additional revenue to solve. As Adam has pointed out, we can’t tax and/or regulate our way to a solution. Taxes and regulations are already too burdensome for too many of our property-owning families and businesses. Attracting businesses and other sources of private investment must be the cornerstone of Rockland’s revenue-development plan going forward. Adam shares that view and brings 20 years of economic development experience, the last several years as a member of Angus King’s senatorial staff, to back it up. Adam understands what government can and can’t do to solve community problems.

Vote for Adam Lachman this November.
