maine street solutions


"When the Maine State Chamber of Commerce decided to take a leadership role in the tax debate we called on Maine Street Solutions. With their help we crafted a multilateral strategy that integrated electoral politics, model public policy and statehouse know-how. In a few short months, we were able to frame the debate and to create a sense of urgency in legislators. During the first thirty days of the legislature the Governor signed the bill that we supported. We couldn't have been successful without the team at Maine Street Solutions. "

  — Dana Connors, Maine State Chamber of Commerce

"Outnumbered 25 to 1 Mike Saxl and Maine Street Solutions helped develop a strategy to turn the racino debate around in the Maine Legislature. With Mike's help we implemented a member to member influencing program which established immediate credibility with legislators. Ultimately, it allowed the interests of Casinos No to successfully thwart the efforts of other lobbyists who were trying to expand gambling in Maine. We exceeded our expectations in the Maine Legislature because of Mike's work."

"Maine Street Solutions, under the leadership of Michael Saxl, has been an incredible asset to AARP Hawaii.
