The Maine Heritage Policy Center is sitting down for a detailed policy discussion with the men and women who are seeking to become the next governor of Maine.
Shawn Moody was the next candidate to speak with us, which you can watch here. In the coming days we will be releasing interviews with candidates running in both the Republican and Democratic primaries, as well as independent candidates for governor.
Our goal is simple: to provide the people of Maine with an opportunity to hear from the candidates in their own words, talking about the policy issues that they will have to confront if they become the next governor of Maine.
We are not asking about the horse race, or personality conflicts with other candidates, who is more electable, or any of the typically political questions that dominate election season.
MHPC is focusing entirely on policy, and rather than be constrained by two minute answers in a debate setting, it is our hope that a long, open conversation about the issues might illuminate these candidates' unvarnished opinions about the major issues of the day.
