Who We Are

"The last decade of austerity, compounded by tax breaks for the wealthy and corporations, have created deep challenges and inequities in our communities and undermined the public services the people of Maine rely upon. We're excited to be a part of Mainer for Tax Fairness because we need to unrig our tax code, raise revenue, and invest in our communities. It’s time for lawmakers to act and for the wealthy to pay their fair share."

ALEC MAYBARDUK, Executive Director of Maine Service Employees Association SEIU Local 1989

"The LePage administration's tax cuts for the wealthy have deprived our communities of urgently needed investments in education, public health, public safety, road, bridges and infrastructure and critical services. Costs have been shifted to working people. The pandemic has intensified these inequalities. Working people have been forced to take all of the risks in this pandemic, from working on the frontlines to suffering the worst of the lay-offs, while the rich keep getting richer. It’s high time to recognize that trickle down economics is a failed ideology. We need to make the wealthy pay their fair share so we can make the collective investments to build a Maine that works for everyone."

MATT SCHLOBOHM, Executive Director of the Maine AFL-CIO

"Tax fairness is the hidden core of social and economic justice."

DR. JERRY MARX, Executive Director
