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."
  • Committed to Responsible Tax Policy and Spending: "The Maine Tax Code needs modernization to eliminate numerous exemptions, broaden the sales tax base and reduce income taxes. We can't give tax cuts to the very wealthy while taxing public employee salaries and pensions."
  • Committed to Protecting the Environment: "The environment is under attack this session in Augusta. You can count on me to support the Kids' Safe Product Act and the numerous other laws that protect our pristine environment."
