Senate President Thibodeau said, “Senator Lisa Keim will be a strong asset to not only the Judiciary Committee, but to the entire Maine Legislature. As long as I have known her, she has demonstrated a tremendous capacity for leadership, fairness and a concern for her fellow citizens. She will do a great job leading this committee.”
