    On Saturday, Jan. 15, Cameron Reny announced her candidacy for Maine Senate District 13. Reny was joined by her family, Senate President Troy Jackson, Senate Majority Leader Eloise Vitelli, Sen. Chloe Maxmin and other local elected officials.

    “As an educator and lifelong resident of Lincoln County, I’m running for office to bring regular Mainers back into focus, and preserve a bright future for our children,” said Reny. “The first in my family to finish college, I pursued a career in public education. I’ve spent years teaching students the skills they need to help themselves and connecting families to community resources. Now, as a mother myself, I feel more strongly than ever before we need to preserve a sustainable future where our children can thrive.”

    “I know that District 13 will be well represented by Cameron in the Maine Senate,” said Maxmin, D-Nobleboro. “Cameron, as an educator and mother, will bring important experience and perspective to the Senate. She will fight to make sure that our children have the opportunity to live, work, and succeed here at home in District 13."

    “As a fifth generation logger, I know firsthand that for far too long, working people in Maine have been forgotten by politicians. That’s why I’m thrilled that Cameron is running for the State Senate. As a lifelong resident of Lincoln County, Cameron’s working-class roots run deep. The daughter of a carpenter and a machinist, with fishermen in the family, Cameron knows firsthand that our heritage industries are what make our communities strong,” said Jackson, D-Allagash. “Cameron’s not a politician, she’s an educator, community member, and mother. She knows where Lincoln County has been and knows where we need to go. That’s why I’m excited that Cameron is running for the State Senate, she will bring a much-needed voice to Augusta."

    Reny was born and raised in Lincoln County in Round Pond. She is the daughter of working-class parents, who worked a variety of jobs as carpenters, fishermen, machinists, painters and more. She works as a school counselor and educator and is acutely aware of the struggles families face every day. Her husband of eight years, Adam, is one of the owner/operators of Renys department stores. They have two young children, ages 1 and 4. Cameron Reny is running for the State Senate to improve the lives of people in her district and preserve a future, here, for our children and grandchildren.
