Pinny Beebe-Center is running for Maine Senate District 12 representing Knox County with the exception of Washington.

    

During her three terms in the Maine legislature (2014-2020) and over the course of her public service career, Pinny has learned that communities solve problems by working together. Her legislative successes - from mental health to child abuse to drug sentencing - gathered diverse factions, and crafted policies and laws uniting those voices and strengthening individual laws and building community services for future generations.

    

Pinny’s top priorities as a Senator will be healthcare for all, accessible mental health treatment, reproductive justice, and ensuring funding for schools is fair and equitable. She also intends to continue her work protecting marine resources and criminal justice reform.

Cameron Reny is running for Maine Senate District 13, representing Lincoln County and the towns of Windsor and Washington.

    

Cameron is a lifelong resident of Lincoln County who is now raising two children here. She grew up in a working-class family in Bristol, with her parents working a variety of jobs to pay the bills. Cameron learned early the value of hard work and understands the challenges faced by people and families in District 13.

    

Cameron always knew she wanted to leave the world better than she found it. That’s what drew her to school counseling as a career. Through her experience as an educator, community advocate, union member, and leader of professional associations, Cameron has worked at local, school, district, and state-wide levels to solve problems, support equitable policies, and advocate for children and families. 

    

Cameron is running to give back to the communities she's called home, bring regular Mainers back into focus, and fight for a sustainable future for generations to come.
