From her press release:

MANCHESTER, ME – Pamela J. Boivin of Manchester will be running for the Maine House of Legislature District 83. Boivin currently works as a Legal Specialist at a domestic vio­lence project, as an Adjunct Professor in Justice Studies at the University of Maine and as an Adjunct Professor in Be­havioral Sciences at Kennebec Valley Community College.

Boivin considers herself an advocate, not a politician

“I believe that we have a moral obligation to take care of the most vulnerable in our society, from our children to our older population. If elected to the Maine State Legislature, I will advocate for the quality of life to improve for ALL Maine citizens.”

She has earned a Juris Doctor from the Uni­versity Maine School of Law and is a graduate of the Maine Criminal Justice Academy and former officer in the Maine Army Na­tional Guard. Boivin has done post-graduate work at the Bangor Theological Seminary and is currently in the dissertation phase of a Ph.D. in Criminal Psychology.

Boivin’s past professional experience has included working as a Guardian ad Litem in child protective cases, as a law en­forcement officer and Assistant District Attorney in the Of­fice of the Domestic Violence Prosecutor. Past and current boards that she has been a member of include: St. Mary’s Home and School Association, Maine Coalition to End Domestic Violence, Maine Women’s Policy Center and Women Unlimited.

Boivin continued: “I will work to create equality in Maine. First with equality in taxes; we need to restore fairness to the Maine tax code. We need to move toward equal taxation; we can balance our state budget if Maine’s wealthiest 1% pays the same state and local tax rate as what the rest of us are currently paying. I will work to create equality in economic development and job creation. I will fight to help Maine workers and small business owners and I will work towards equality in providing health care options for men AND women of Maine.”
