Campaign themes

Dill's 2011 special election campaign site emphasizes several key policy positions and campaign themes:

  • Committed to Community: "My voting record reflects the values and priorities of our community and the people I proudly serve. I will always put community over party when representing South Portland, Cape Elizabeth and Scarborough in Augusta."
  • Committed to Excellence in our Schools: "I protected our schools from consolidation, keeping education in South Portland, Cape Elizabeth and Scarborough strong. I will continue to fight for the fair distribution of education funding, and much needed reforms to ensure our students can learn and compete in the 21st century."
  • Committed to Economic Prosperity: "I have led the effort to bring high-speed Internet to unserved areas of our state, and helped to bring over $35 million of investment to Maine. This will create jobs and help the business community, as well as enhance educational opportunities, healthcare delivery, and public safety."
