Her decision to sell fashionable, fun clothing as an independent LuLaRoe partner will not affect her duties as a United States Senator, she told the crowd.
“This is a way for me to take control of my life, to run my own business, on my terms, but also to have a little fun,” Collins said. Collins had previously announced she will not seek a candidacy in Maine’s 2018 gubernatorial race.
“Selling LuLaRoe has nothing to do with my decision regarding the governship,” she told the crowded room, and once again committed herself to her work as a senator.
Those in attendance were delighted both by the reiteration of her decision to continue to serve Maine, but also delighted by the fun goodie bags at every place setting, including a refrigerator magnet, sweet treats, and a coupon for 10% off their first purchase.
“Aside from allowing me to seize on my latent entrepreneurial spirit, LuLaRoe also gives me a chance to make some extra money,” Collins said, noting that unlike Senator Angus King “not all of us can get huge payouts from the defense industry.”
