Sen. Vitelli has  made Arrowsic her home for the last 40 years. She represents Senate District 23 in the Maine Senate, which includes all of Sagadahoc County and the town of Dresden in Lincoln County. She was first elected to the Maine Senate during a special election in 2013.

Recently retired after 38 years, she  worked with New Ventures Maine (formerly known as Women, Work and Community), a statewide organization that helps Maine people create their own path to a career by finding jobs, continuing with education or starting a small business. The Maine Small Business Administration has recognized Sen. Vitelli’s career in economic development, which also includes a stint on the Maine Economic Growth Council.

Sen. Vitelli is the mother of two grown sons, and lives with her husband, Bob, in the home she built in Arrowsic after attending the Shelter Institute.
