(December 21, 2020) – Senator Kimberley Rosen has been appointed to serve as the lead Senate Republican on two legislative committees in the 130th State Legislature that was sworn in earlier this month.
She will serve on the Joint Standing Committee on State and Local Government Committee as well as the Joint standing Committee on Marine Resources Committee.
“I chose these two committees to finish out my time in the senate because I believe that my presence there will be of great value to my community,” said Senator Rosen. “For example, being on the Marine Resources Committee will be of value given the growth and expansion of Salmon farming in Bucksport.”
During the last two legislative sessions she served on the Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee.
Prior to her service in the Senate, Senator Rosen served four terms in the Maine House of Representatives. During her time in the House, she was a member of the Transportation Committee and the Environment and Natural Resources Committee. She also served as the State Chair of Women In Government, a national organization of women legislators from all over the country.
In November, Senator Rosen was reelected to serve Senate District 8 which is made up of Bucksport, Castine, Dedham, Great Pond, Northwest Hancock Unorganized Territory, T32 MD Township, part of the East Hancock Unorganized Territory, Orland, Penobscot, Verona Island, Bradley, Brewer, Burlington, Clifton, East Central Penobscot Unorganized Territory, Eddington, Holden, Lincoln, Lowell and Orrington.
