Stories about Kevin Raye
Occupation: Mustard mill owner
Family: Wife, Karen
Experience: Senate Republican Leader (2008-present); Maine State Senator (2004-Present); Chief of Staff to U.S. Sen. Olympia Snowe (1994-2001); District Director for U.S. Rep. Olympia Snowe (1983-1994)
Top three priorities: (1) Encourage job growth by reining in taxes and reducing Maine’s regulatory burden; (2) Establish common sense fiscally-responsible spending priorities; and (3) Fix a flawed education funding formula that is unfair to rural students and drives up property taxes. In pursuing these goals, I feel a special responsibility to continue working to change the dynamics that have caused the Down East area to lag behind economically for generations.
