Chloe Maxmin
Candidate for Maine State Senate District 13

About Chloe

Welcome! My name is Chloe Maxmin. I grew up on my family's farm in Nobleboro and am running as a Democrat and Clean Elections candidate to represent Maine Senate District 13 (see a list of towns below). For as long as I can remember, I have cared so deeply about our community and knew that I would devote my life to our shared home. I went to Lincoln Academy for high school and Harvard for college. The day after I graduated, I moved back to build my life in Maine.

I have worked with people across Maine, New England, and the country for fifteen years to call on our political system to fight for us and with us. We struggle every day with rising healthcare costs, declining school funding, property taxes, student debt, a changing climate, and more. We need our politicians to stand up for us.

My love for our community and the lack of courage in Augusta inspired me to run for office in 2018. Since then, it has been my honor to represent House District 88 (Chelsea, Whitefield, Jefferson, and half of Nobleboro).

I’ve been proud to sponsor legislation that came directly from my constituents--from workforce development around green energy to rural transportation access and more. My promise in 2018 was to represent, to be accessible, to be honest, and to be in the community instead of getting stuck in Augusta. That has been my charge.

Now, we’re launching a campaign for State Senate. The work of politics is about electing good people who will listen to us, represent us, and listen to the will of the people. But it’s also more than that. It’s about what we can do together, what we can build in our community, the conversations that we have with respect, the ways that we can unite over what we have in common rather than what separates us.

Community Response to COVID-19

As we all navigate the uncertainty of this crisis, we've pressed pause on the State Senate campaigning for now. Instead, we have shifted all of our grassroots volunteer efforts towards ensuring that everyone in our communities here in District 13 has the support that they need to get through this crisis.

One thing we are doing is phone banking (from home) to reach out to our senior citizens, especially those who live alone, to make sure that they are okay, and ensure that they will have access to the resources that they need in the coming weeks, like food, insurance/healthcare access, pharmacy runs, and someone to call if they're lonely or need anything at all. Please fill out the form below if you'd like to get involved in helping us make calls to neighbors or run errands for those who need food, medications, or other essentials.

We're all worried about folks in need in our communities during the COVID-19 crisis. Thank you so much to all the amazing volunteers who are stepping up with grace and compassion to reach out and make sure that our neighbors have access to the support and resources they need. We are all in this together.

Please fill out the form below if you'd like to join our volunteer team or offer support.

Our Campaign

We’re just launching the campaign. More detailed policies and issues are forthcoming. For now, we wanted to share some of the values that will drive our campaign in 2020.

We’re committed to a 100% positive campaign. We believe in a politics that can bring us together, not tear us apart. That's what this is our campaign. We will build it together, and what we build will last far beyond Election Day.

This campaign is not about Party. It’s about values. Our work is about respect, listening, inclusivity, and fighting for each other. It’s also about modeling a new kind of politics that is responsive and transparent, that prioritizes our community, and can be held accountable by the people.

We're running as a Clean Elections candidate to keep big money out of politics. We secure funding by collecting $5 contributions from people in our district. Please click "donate" at the top of the page to support us.

And sign-up below to join the team as we build momentum throughout the year!
