2012

Pierce's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[2]

Insurance Reform

  • Excerpt: "I believe that there are existing programs that Maine can look at as examples to help business and the people of Maine. We do not need to re-invent the wheel we only need to provide the best opportunities available and by doing so we can draw more businesses to Maine and create more jobs for our people."

Energy

  • Excerpt: "Whether it be the developement of natural gas pipelines or LNG terminals, Maine needs more options than it now has for our families. The people and businesses of Maine cannot keep depending on oil based energy as a primary source."

Government Regulations

  • Excerpt: "I intend to provide the leadership that is needed for Maine to grow. Regulations set by legislature are for growing the economy in maine not for restricting good people and business from doing good things."
