From the beaches and thriving urban centers of southern and coastal Maine to the pristine wilderness of our northern forests, the Maine Senate Democrats represent roughly 600,000 people all over our state.
Our caucus includes men and women with diverse occupational backgrounds reflecting the broad tapestry of Maine people — including small business, law enforcement, teaching, medicine and even aviation.
Sen. Troy Jackson was chosen by the caucus as the Senate Democratic Leader for the 128th Legislature. Sen. Nate Libby of Lewiston was elected the Senate Democratic Whip.
The longest-serving member in our caucus is Sen. Bill Diamond of Windham, who is enjoying his seventh term in the Senate and also served eight years as Secretary of State. Sens. Shenna Bellows, Brownie Carson, Justin Chenette, Ben Chipman and Mark Dion are serving their first terms.
Despite their diverse backgrounds, the caucus is united with a shared vision for prosperity and a bright future.
That vision includes:
- supporting Maine businesses
- guaranteeing a first-class education for all Maine children
- promoting clean, renewable energy
- fighting for social and economic justice
- preserving Maine’s reputation as one of the best places to live, work and play
