Hello, I’m Cathy Nichols. I’m an environmental professional, a wife and a mother from Falmouth, and I am running to be the next state senator for District 25 which includes Falmouth, Chebeague Island, Cumberland, Gray, Long Island, Yarmouth and part of Westbrook. I’m running to be your next senator because I’ve studied state policies and advocated for Maine manufacturers and I have more than 20 years experience helping industry comply with environmental and safety regulations. I have the experience, talent and passion it takes to be your next state senator.
Maine is known for its clean air and water, and the quality of our many wild places. Our natural resources contribute to our high quality of life, driving tourists here in droves each year to experience what makes this place “Vacationland.”
In Augusta, I will fight to protect our environmental legacy while also working to advance policies to keep Maine prosperous. I understand the importance of building a strong tax base and reigning in out-of-state interests that have used our referendum process to hold our economy hostage. Our state should not be the testing ground for failed policies and agendas from away.
It is time to bring some common sense back into the equation to make sure that our citizen initiative process is once again driven by our citizens and for our citizens. I look forward to hearing from you over the next few months on the campaign trail.
