Campaign themes


Mattingly's campaign website listed several main issues: [5]

  • Health care - "Maine has the 2nd highest cost in the nation"
  • Energy - "Top 3rd in the nation - WHY?"
  • Taxes - "15th highest in the nation - WHY?"
  • Economy - "Our economy and business climate is ranked in the bottom 20% - WHY?"

"Electing the same people and expecting different results is the definition of insanity!"
