State Rep. Chloe Maxmin (D-Nobleboro) on January 13 announced her campaign for Senate District 13, challenging Senate Republican Minority Leader Dana Dow (R-Waldoboro). The campaign will celebrate the launch with a community potluck on Friday, January 24, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the North Nobleboro Community Center.

Maxmin grew up in Nobleboro, is a graduate of Lincoln Academy and Harvard College, and worked as a community organizer for more than 15 years. She currently represents House District 88 (Chelsea, Whitefield, Jefferson and half of Nobleboro).

In her announcement, she spoke of a committment to “a new kind of politics” that “builds on what we have in common instead of what divides us.”

“This campaign is about everyone in District 13,” she said. “It’s not about party. It’s about values. Our work is about respect, listening, inclusivity and fighting for each other. It’s also about modeling a new kind of politics that is responsive and transparent, that prioritizes our community, and can be held accountable by the people.”

Senate District 13 comprises Alna, Boothbay, Boothbay Harbor, Bremen, Bristol, Damariscotta, Edgecomb, Hibberts Gore, Jefferson, Louds Island, Monhegan Island Plantation, Newcastle, Nobleboro, Somerville, South Bristol, Southport, Waldoboro, Washington, Westport Island, Whitefield, Windsor and Wiscasset.

As of January 20, no candidates had registered to run for Maxmin’s seat in House District 88.
