Biography of Mike McClellan

 

Mike McClellan has lived in Raymond for over 30 years. His wife Michelle is an assistant superintendent in the Auburn school system and their adult children Maggie and Pat both have begun their adult lives outside of Maine. Mike has extensive experience in local volunteering within the Maine House District 66 area. He is currently on the board of The Lewiston Root Cellar. Mike has served both school board and select board including chairing the school board in a year a building project was being successfully presented to the public. Mike coached both boys and girls sports; volunteered in the school system and was on committees such as Raymond Recycling and Raymond PTA. He recently was a member of the committee in Raymond looking at staying/leaving the RSU 14 District While his children attended Poland Regional Middle and High School, he was both a volunteer and ran an internship program in the high school that allowed students to experience their potential career options.

Mike has been an active Republican throughout his life dating back to his elementary school years. Mike’s work in healthcare, education and business and now government has helped him form clear ideas about what is working in Maine and what needs to be changed. He believes there are many good people in our state government but the stresses of the election process cause candidates to focus more on remaining in office than on doing the people’s work. This will not be an issue for Mike. Serving as a state representative is a calling at this time and not a career choice. Mike’s past work as Executive Director at a local Maine Chamber of Commerce; as Director of MACCE (Maine Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives) has allowed him to focus locally as well as to make business contacts throughout Maine. Mike currently is the Executive Director of the Maine Statewide Independent Living Council (Maine SILC). The Maine SILC advocates and supports all things in terms of independent living for people with disabilities.

Mike and Michelle attend both Mechanic Falls Vineyard Church and The Deeper Worship Center. They serve at each. Mike and his family look to God and their faith in making all decisions.


Mike Answers....Why Run Again?

A sudden vacancy in the Maine House Seat District #103 (in 2009) was a surprise to me. This seat has a tradition of strong Republican leadership. My first two years were exciting and a learning process. Republican rule in Maine (The only two years in 40 I am told) led to positive change in regulatory reform, tax relief for all, insurance change that brought rates down and much more. Recent focus has been on education and advocating for Maine people with disabilities.

Sadly, politics have become so divisive in Maine that there was little opportunity to collaborate in the past two years. If you support a republican or democrat, it is pretty clear what you will get in Augusta. Why run?.... because we need the party who cares about local control, budgets and the family! We need to support a party who sees the God given good in our country and the hope/opportunity we can offer. The American dream is real, lets turn back towards it! We need to change the majority to bring positive and respectful leadership to Augusta and in Maine Government. I ask for your support this fall and thank you in advance for your vote in November.
