Issues

Campaign themes

2010

Cushing's campaign website listed his leadership priorities for change: [2]

  • Energy - "Energy independence is a Maine issue requiring leadership in Augusta. We cannot afford to wait for others to determine our future for us."
  • Taxes - "End the unrelenting cycle of tax increases. Each time taxes go up, the number of jobs in Maine goes down. A sound economy requires sound tax policies."
  • Spending - "A six billion dollar budget ought to be enough. LImiting choices, making priorities and being disciplined will get the job done."
  • Economy - "A strong economy requires lowering the cost of energy, limiting taxes and controlling spending. This is the kind of leadership Augusta should be providing."
