Guest:

Shawn Moody,
Republican Gubernatorial Candidate
Owner, Founder
Moody’s Collision Center

A lifelong common-sense conservative and successful job-creating entrepreneur, Shawn Moody is running for Governor of Maine to ensure Maine continues to be successful for years to come and that every Mainer achieves his or her full potential.

Shawn Moody is best known for the successful business he has grown to 11 locations around Maine.

The son of a single mom who struggled with illness in-and-out of the hospital while trying to raise Shawn and his siblings; Shawn learned firsthand what it meant to struggle and it to overcome adversity.

Growing up in a trailer park in Gorham, the same town in which he now lives, Shawn and his brother and sister worked together with their mom, a hair stylist, to keep the family together.

As a young man, Shawn knew that his way to success in life was a career and a job. At the age of just 13 Shawn started working with automobiles as his hobby and, by that age, had already rebuilt engines and began overhauling cars.

Shawn later started a business in his mom’s garage which has grown to Moody’s Collision Centers, one of Maine’s most successful entrepreneurial companies with 11 locations and nearly 200 employees. Moody’s has twice been named “Maine’s Best Places to Work” statewide.

Moody’s employees are collectively coworker owners. Moody’s employee ownership is a reflection of Shawn Moody’s approach to problem solving, which is based on empowering people and challenging them to achieve success, which benefits everyone from the top-to-bottom of an organization.

As a successful job creator, Shawn Moody knows Maine’s success for years to come is grounded in continuing to grow our economy, create jobs, and improve wages for people all over Maine. He will work to end any job-killing red tape and ensure Maine government works with our small businesses and job creators to succeed, rather than hindering job growth.

Shawn also knows Maine must live within its means. Any state spending must be smart and prudent. The People of Maine must be assured they are getting a dollar’s return for every dollar spent. We must root out waste, fraud, and abuse of taxpayer dollars wherever it is found.

Terry Hayes
Independent Gubernatorial Candidate

Hayes For Maine

Terry Hayes is the only candidate for Governor with the experience, independence, and courage to unite Maine, fix a broken political system, and lead our state in a bold new direction. Terry talks straight and tells the truth, puts people over partisanship, and rolls up her sleeves to get the job done.

As Maine’s first independent State Treasurer and Clean Elections candidate for Governor, Terry is beholden only to the Maine people, and not to party leaders, special interests, or wealthy campaign contributors. Republicans and Democrats have twice elected Terry to serve as Maine’s first independent State Treasurer because she has consistently risen above the partisan fray and helped to right the financial ship of state.

As Maine’s next Governor, Terry will bring the same no-nonsense, non-partisan leadership to the Blaine House, uniting Republicans and Democrats around common goals to tackle Maine’s toughest challenges and making Maine the best place to work in America. Terry will lead with integrity, model civility, and champion fiscal responsibility, accountability, and transparency in government.

An outsider on the inside of state government, Terry has a track record of challenging politics as usual in Augusta and forging consensus between Republicans and Democrats. The Bangor Daily News has called Terry a “maverick” with “bipartisan gravitas.”

A PROBLEM-SOLVER

  • When Governor LePage withheld $600 million in transportation investments, Terry worked tirelessly to broker an agreement that released the funding, putting 4,500 Mainers back to work fixing Maine’s roads and bridges.
  • When Democratic and Republican leadership drew partisan lines over how to manage Maine’s unorganized territories, Terry negotiated a compromise bill that improved land use management policies to protect our forests and waterways, preserve our heritage, and expand public input.
  • When Maine had the opportunity to create special tax-advantaged bank accounts for persons with disabilities, Terry partnered with key stakeholders, including disabled citizens, advocates, and financial institutions to develop and implement a sustainable, consumer-friendly product that makes saving possible and affordable for disabled Mainers.

Changing Culture Through Well Being –

Denise Dumont-Bernier, PT, has been in the occupational health field for over 25 years, beginning her career as an on-site physical therapist contracted to Bath Iron Works. She subsequently opened her own private physical therapy practice in South Portland where she continued to focus on occupational rehabilitation, and contracted on-site with companies such as UnumProvident, Cole Haan, Saunders Brothers, Portland Press Herald, Pratt Abbot Cleaners and many others. She eventually sold the practice to a large, national health care organization and managed occupational medicine and rehabilitation practices, growing services from Southern Maine to Lewiston, Brunswick and Augusta.

She was then lured to direct the hospital-based occupational Medicine department at MaineGeneral Medical Center where she turned around an underperforming medical practice, to a successful, profitable contributor to the health organization, expanding market share and developing on site services for both occupational health and wellness. Through her employment with MaineGeneral Health, Maine’s 3rd largest health system serving the Greater Kennebec Valley Region, she worked with MaineGeneral’s many family practices, medical center services, and prevention/community services to offer an integrated solution to healthcare for employers in this region. She was also responsible for developing MaineGeneral’s Express Care services and the very successful Wellness services for over 4000 hospital employees and several businesses throughout the region.

Today, Denise serves as the Executive Director at Occupational Medical Consulting, (OMC WellnessWorks), a Maine based business recognized locally and nationally as a leader in effective health behavior change, health coaching and wellness designed to deliver results.  OMC offers leading-edge worksite-based health coaching, using behavior change motivational interviewing methods, supported by propriety wellness software that tracks and reports results.

She holds a baccalaureate degree in physical therapy from Simmons College, Boston. She has years of experience with providing on-site occupational health, industrial rehabilitation and with integrating worksite wellness services for many well-known Maine employers. She works strategically with business owners, safety and HR professionals to enhance employee health and wellbeing, and track results. Denise has been a member of the Maine Employers Mutual Insurance Company (MEMIC) medical advisory board for over 20 years and was the chairperson for the “Healthy People of the Kennebec Valley” business-driven worksite wellness council.   She has presented at numerous regional and national conferences on a variety of topics.

Denise has always been passionate about the injury prevention and the health and safety of Maine workers. She believes that employers have a critical role and the power to influence healthcare consumerism through their employees and their families. In partnership, a healthier community can be built, and healthy and productive employees mean healthier Maine businesses.
