Small business owners join fight for clean elections

Beacon - Small business owners affiliated with the Maine Small Business Coalition gathered in Lewiston to announce their formal endorsement of a “Yes” vote on Question 1, the citizens’ initiative on the ballot this November to strengthen Maine’s campaign disclosure and public financing laws. “Like so many other people, I am frustrated by the massive amounts of money being spent to influence elections in Maine and across the country,” said Bettyann Sheats, owner of Finishing Touches Shower Doors in Auburn. “For small businesses like mine to compete effectively, we need equal access to our government. We need politicians who are working for us and all the people of Maine – not their wealthy campaign contributors.”
