Today, we see the results of electing people who have made “poor” decisions.  Those results are in the news daily.  We have watched taxes go up with nothing accomplished, inflation rise to historic levels, and overall fiscal mismanagement.

I am Michael Hall, running for the Maine House for District 107.  I have lived in Windham for almost 20 years and have a wonderful wife and one grown son.  In 2003 my family moved to Windham for a job opportunity, and we quickly realized it was where we wanted to settle down.  In addition to my job in Windham, my wife and I own a small business in Saco called Maine Lash Girl, LLC.

When I am not working, I volunteer with a veterans group and spend time with veterans.  I take some time each week and teach families about the history of U.S. conflicts and how it affects things happening today.  I volunteer and contribute to an addiction recovery group in Portland.

I will represent all the residents of Windham and not special interest groups.  Windham residents deserve to have their voices heard and have representation by someone experienced in their community; without being too entrenched in the political mainstream.   

If elected, I will engage with you!  I will make an example of this every week up to election day.  If you hear a knock at your door and I’m on the other side, I want to know what you want and what ideas you have for a better Windham and Maine.

Issues:

Taxes

Taxes harm economic growth. The State must implement steps to improve the economy long-term and avoid any short-term gimmicks that will exacerbate the current inflation problem. Maine needs to implement pro-growth tax reform that will benefit everyone. As an employee and a small business owner, I see firsthand the unnecessary taxes and regulations hindering business growth.

Take Back the Schools

Maine needs to expand education-choice and allow funding to follow students. Choice in education is increasingly essential when public schools try to limit parents’ access to their children’s education. Teachers should teach reading, writing, math, critical thinking, and other must-have skills to prepare our youth for life. The school system should dismiss any political agenda.

Business Friendly Maine

Why is Maine ranked so low for business friendliness?  At least one source had Maine at number 48 in 2021: the worst in the contiguous U.S.  The reasons cited? Poor infrastructure, an unreliable power grid, and the cost of doing business.  The State needs to make it easier and more profitable to do business.

Property Tax Stabilization for Senior Citizens

Property Tax Stabilization for Senior Citizens, also known as the Property Tax Stabilization Program (the “Program”), is a State program that allows certain senior-citizen residents to stabilize, or freeze, the property taxes on their homestead. As long as you qualify and file a timely application each year, the tax billed to you for your homestead will be frozen at the amount you were billed in the prior tax year. Eligible residents who move may transfer the fixed tax amount to a new homestead, even if that new homestead is in a different Maine municipality.
