Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Ely's website highlighted the following campaign themes:

In Education

I will work to restore the cuts the State has made to education funding and revenue sharing with the town, and not continue to balance the state budget on the backs of local property taxpayers. This will give relief to property taxpayers and help us ensure our schools have the funds they need to meet our student's needs.

In Farming

I will work to address the risks and problems to homeowners and the town’s infrastructure from climate change, not deny that climate change is happening. We are a coastal community. People depend on our natural resources as a source of income, as well as pleasure. We should be taking the lead on this issue.

In Business

I will work to encourage job growth in Maine by promoting our greatest asset, our quality of life, not by trying to bribe out of state corporations with more tax breaks. The business owners I worked with came to Maine and stayed in Maine because this was where they wanted to raise their family. We need to market to our strength. [2][3]
