If you’re wondering how the candidates for Governor stack up on issues important to Maine’s innovation economy, we recommend you read through this survey conducted by Maine Startup Insider: The 2018 gubernatorial candidates on fostering innovation, R&D spending, non-competes, the Seed Capital Tax Credit, and more.

With permission from Maine Startup Insider:

As the candidates for Maine’s Blaine House attend debates and continue to highlight their policy positions in the final run up to election day, they’re more often than not addressing big-picture issues such as economic development, healthcare, the state’s opioid epidemic, etc. Rarely are they opining on issues of specific interest to Maine’s startup community.
Until now.

Maine Startups Insider prepared a survey that included questions of interest to the startup community (many crowdsourced from MSI subscribers) and sent it to the four main gubernatorial candidates: Janet Mills (D), the state’s attorney general; Shawn Moody (R), a Gorham businessman; Terry Hayes (I), the state treasurer; and Alan Caron (I), a Freeport businessman and consultant. Each candidate agreed to participate.
