Campaign themes

On his campaign website, Langley outlines these issues as his main priorities: [5]

  • Quality of place - "Expanding opportunities such as [eco-tourism], as well as creating opportunities through education to teach marketable skills to the area's youngest populations will go a long way toward increasing quality of place."
  • Party, politics and government - "Langley is a Republican who doesn’t mind voting against the party line in order to meet the stated needs of his constituents. Adding that he spends a lot of time researching and thinking through all sides of an issue, he said he believes it is his duty to do his homework and vote for what is best for the district he represents."
  • Rural Maine - “The one-size-fits-all approach does not work well in Maine,” said Langley. “All regions have a flavor and history that makes them uniquely Maine.” Aiming to represent a large and diverse district, Langley said that, if elected, he would "set up office hours in schools across his district to listen to the concerns of his constituents, as well as to allow time for discussions with the next generation of voters."
  • Population trends and resources - Access to good paying jobs and programs that will teach marketable skills, drawing business to Maine, teaching entrepreneurship. Langley believes in a fairer tax structure for the aging segments of Maine's population, on that allows people to retire to Maine.
  • Welfare - While not fully willing to accept data and reports from partisan policy groups, Langley said he does believe Maine’s welfare system provides little incentive or opportunity for people to transition out of. Calling the welfare system “broken,” the Senate candidate said he would propose the creation of a “sliding scale” or some other mechanism to allow people who are on welfare to receive needed benefits until such time that they can afford them.

"With a 'citizen-led Legislature, I don’t believe in my heart that it is meant to be a life-long career for anyone and that there comes a time to take your turn and help,' said Langley, 'and I feel it is my turn.'"
