Governor Mills Announces Run for Reelection in November


Governor Janet T. Mills (D), the first woman governor of Maine and the first and only women state attorney general, announced today she is runing for reelection in November.  The announcement came in a video in which she stated there is much work left to be done.

“Through difficult and dangerous times, you have shone Maine is stronger than we ever could have imagined.  Our goals since the beginning of this unprecedented challenge have been to save lives and livelihoods, and – thanks to you – we’ve succeeded better than virtually every state in the nation,” said Governor Mills in a press release issued this morning.

“We have accomplished so much, but I’m running for relection because there’s so much left to do.  It’s time to invest in you, the people of Maine.  You are what moves us forward, what makes us strong.  You deserve every ounce of hard-won progress we’ve achieved and you’ve earned all the progress yet to come.  Together we will move Maine forward.”
