Guest Column: Mayhew is a solid choice to lead state health care agency

|

Mary Mayhew will do an excellent job leading Florida’s Agency for Health Care Administration.

During my time in the Maine Legislature, I served on the Health and Human Services Committee and witnessed abject waste and fraud in that state.

The budget of the Maine Department of Health and Human Services was consistently in the red — and welfare enrollment was on the rise.

But that changed when Mayhew took over the department in 2011.
