Nate Libby Announces Run for HD 73 (Lewiston)
From his press release:
Nate Libby has announced his candidacy for the Maine House of Representatives, district 73, which includes the neighborhoods surrounding St. Mary’s Hospital and Bates College, along with the Sunnyside, Webster Street, College Street, and lower Sabattus Street neighborhoods.
He seeks to replace outgoing Rep. Richard Wagner, who served three terms in the House and in his third term as the ranking member of the Joint Standing Committee on Education and Cultural Affairs.
Libby, 27, is married to Andrea and has a three year old son, Jude. He is a graduate of Bates College with a degree in History & Economics and of Skowhegan Area High School in Skowhegan, Maine.
He serves on the Lewiston City Council representing Ward 3, the Lewiston-Auburn Economic Growth Council, and the City of Lewiston’s Community Development Block Grant Committee. He is the past director of the Maine Small Business Coalition, a
non-profit small business advocacy group. Self-employed, Libby works as a property manager, carpenter, and political consultant.
Libby’s top three areas of interest include: supporting and strengthening Maine’s small, independent business community through targeted tax credits and expanding small business loan programs; expanding access, lowering costs, and improving the quality and outcomes in Maine’s health care system; and fighting for Lewiston’s fair share of resources and revenue from the state.
“For the last couple of years, the Legislature has seemed more concerned with pushing an ideological agenda rather than coming up with real solutions to help Maine people who are struggling,” said Libby. “I will bring new energy and a new perspective to Augusta, and, most importantly, I will be a fierce advocate for the people of my district and for the city of Lewiston.”
