“Cain knows that small businesses and entrepreneurs are the backbone of the Maine economy, and of America. She is dedicated to supporting their success, supports a positive economic environment for women workers and business owners, American job creation, fair pay, a fair minimum-wage, family-friendly workplaces, tax policies that support a vibrant middle class and access to capital and federal contracts for women-owned firms,” continues Dorfman.

Following onto her experience in the Maine Legislature, Emily will continue to work to ensure that small businesses and startup entrepreneurs in Maine and across the country have the resources they need to reach their full potential.
