Alan Tibbetts Announces Candidacy for House District 77 (Sidney, Oakland)
“I’m running as a common sense voice for the people of Oakland and Sidney, to represent their interests, not the special interests,” Tibbetts said. “We need jobs that pay living wages, health care that is both affordable and ethical, and our personal privacy must be better protected. I’m tired of seeing people that work hard and play by the rules keep losing ground because the people in power keep changing the rules. It’s time that political power returns to the people where it belongs.”
Alan grew up in Eustis. The son of a logger and school teacher, he graduated from the University of Maine with a bachelor’s degree in political science. After serving on active duty, Alan returned to Maine and joined the National Guard. He was in command of units which provided assistance to Maine towns during the flood of ’87 and again during the ice storm of ’98.
After 33 years of service, Alan retired from the Guard as a Lieutenant Colonel in 2013.
Alan, his wife Kathy, and their two children, Heidi and Brian, have lived in Sidney for 18 years.
