House District 42

Winterport-Swanville area


Michael Thibodeau

Age: 42

Hometown: Winterport

Address: 169 Coles Corner Road

Web site:

Education: Hampden Academy graduate

Family: Married to Stacy; two daughters: Megan and Sara

Occupation: Self-employed business owner

Experience: Former selectman, town of Winterport; member of 123rd Legislature, served on Energy and Utilities Committee

Reason for running: Hard-working Maine families deserve an opportunity to succeed. Because of state policies that defy logic, many of these opportunities are never realized. With proper leadership and a change in direction by our state government, we will be able to offer our children and grandchildren a state with good-paying jobs that offer security for them and their families.

Address: 127 Stovepipe Alley

Web site:

Education: GED, Belfast Adult Education; attended University of Maine at Orono and Indiana University at Bloomington

Family: Single

Occupation: Carpenter, teacher and farmer

Experience: I am an active member of the Monroe Volunteer Fire Department, and I am a small-business owner.

Reason for running: I am running for the State House of Representatives because we need change. I will work to decrease our dependence on foreign oil and invest in alternative energy here in Maine. Wind farms and solar projects will create new jobs, strengthen our economy, work towards a cleaner environment, and continue to build a state less dependent on foreign oil.
