As the current state director and the new volunteer state president of AARP Maine, we are honored to work with and serve Maine’s 50-plus community. With the legislative session underway, we are excited by all the initiatives AARP Maine is advocating for and wish to highlight a few of our key 2022 priorities:

We will continue the ever-important fight to lower prescription drug costs and increase pricing transparency so that all Mainers have the ability to stay healthy and age independently.
In the past two years, we’ve come to appreciate even more how crucial reliable high-speed internet connection is to living, working and thriving. AARP Maine is dedicated to supporting advocacy for and investments in high-speed internet throughout the state. As we face another Maine winter, AARP Maine is committed to ensuring that providers of electricity, gas, landline, wireless, and broadband offer services customers can depend on and afford.

One of our goals is to help expand the volunteer pool by fostering an understanding that AARP is so much more than the mailings we all receive; AARP is a powerful advocacy group for the entire community of adults 50-plus and their families. We both have tremendous appreciation for all that a committed group of volunteers can accomplish.

Every aspect AARP Maine’s work is supported and guided by members of the community, from across the state, just like you. To join our dynamic group of volunteers, or to learn more about the AARP Maine mission, visit or email

We look forward to serving you in 2022!
