From his press release:

Andrew McLean Announces Candidacy for House District 129 in Gorham

Andrew McLean, a resident of Gorham and educator at the University of Southern Maine, has filed to run for State Representative, House District 129, in Gorham. Andrew grew up in a family of firefighters who placed a strong emphasis on public service. After graduating from college, Andrew chose to settle down in Gorham and took a job in the field of Student Development at the University of Southern Maine in Gorham.

While working at USM, Andrew completed his Master’s Degree in Public Policy from the Muskie School of Public Service and in 2009 was appointed by Governor Baldacci to the Maine Commission for Community Service.

Andrew is running for Legislature because he believes in the opportunities that education can bring. Andrew says, “Education can be the engine of economic growth and increased opportunity in this state. I work with students every day who struggle to find good paying jobs after they graduate from college. Many leave Maine to find work. We cannot afford to keep losing our best and brightest.”

“We need leaders who are going to set real priorities for Maine people and not play politics with invented issues. Maine needs leaders who are going to work hard to create jobs and economic development opportunities, provide a quality education for our kids and link businesses with an educated workforce.”

Andrew is running against a two-term Republican incumbent who is out of touch with Gorham. His opponent voted to roll back voting rights, cut funding for Gorham schools and roll back labor laws.
