BUCKSPORT — State Sen. Kimberley Rosen (R-Hancock County) announced her bid Tuesday to seek a fourth term in the Maine Senate.
“As senator, my approach to public service is to always carefully study each issue and vote in the best interest of Maine and the people of Senate District 8,” Rosen stated in a press release. “I strive to always treat people with dignity and respect.”
Senate District 8 includes Bucksport, Castine, Dedham, Great Pond, Northwest Hancock Unorganized Territory, Township 32, Orland, Penobscot, Verona Island, Bradley, Brewer, Burlington, Clifton, East Central Penobscot Unorganized Territory, Eddington, Holden, Lincoln, Lowell and Orrington.
“Serving as your senator continues to be the greatest privilege granted me as a citizen and daughter of Maine,” Rosen said.
“We are now midway through the legislative session with much accomplished and more challenges to face when we return to the State House next January,” she said. “As always, I am interested to hear from you and hope we see one another as I travel throughout the district this summer and fall.”
“My dedication and enthusiasm for the work remains high and I am energized to carry on and continue to deliver for the Maine people,” Rosen said. “Nothing has occurred to change my plans.”
Rosen was elected senator in 2014.
During her time in the Senate, she has chaired the Engrossed Bills Committee and the Joint Committee on Criminal Justice and Public Safety.
Rosen also is a former member of the Select Committee on Marijuana Legalization Implementation.
She served as a representative in the Maine House of Representatives for House District 40 between 2004 and 2012.
Rosen and husband, Richard, a former legislator, have two children and live in Bucksport.
The politician is a board member of the T.A.Y.L.O.R. Foundation.
The T.A.Y.L.O.R. Foundation (Thinking About Your Life On the Road) is a nonprofit organization that was developed by Corey and Christina Darveau after their daughter Taylor Darveau, 15, was killed in a car crash on Oct. 3, 2013, in Bucksport.
Rosen has previously served on the boards of The Next Step Domestic Violence Project, the Patawa Club, Ronald McDonald House and Women in Government.
