A lawyer, public servant, and successful businessman, Cutler has earned a reputation as a visionary leader, passionate advocate and pragmatic problem-solver.In the 2010 race for Governor, where Cutler went from a political unknown to within little more than a percentage point of defeating frontrunner Paul LePage, he was endorsed by virtually every major newspaper in Maine.The state’s largest daily newspaper said Cutler was the one candidate who “has the potential to bridge philosophical divides, heal political wounds and conquer daunting problems that are confronting state government and Maine’s overburdened taxpayers.” Another leading newspaper said that “Eliot Cutler is the only candidate with the vision and skills to match Maine’s challenges.”

As a public servant, Cutler helped craft America’s foundational environmental laws and managed the policies and budgets of federal energy, natural resources, science and environmental agencies.

As a strategist and lawyer for governments, business corporations and citizens groups, Cutler helped clients grapple with worldwide legal and public policy problems during a career in three law firms and two countries that spanned more than 35 years.
