State Rep. Bruce White announces re-election campaign

Bruce White

Bruce White, Waterville-native and two-term incumbent State Representative, has announced his re-election campaign for the new House District 65, formally District 109, in Waterville.

State Rep. White has served two terms on the Trans­port­ation Com­mittee where he sponsored legislation to create a working group for Maine to offer electronic vehicle titles joining 20 other states. He also advocates to ensure the proper oversight and maintenance of Maine’s roads and bridges.

White has also co-sponsored legislation that has successfully advanced career and technical education opportunities for Maine’s students, increased municipal revenue sharing to 5% to keep state tax dollars locally to prevent property tax increases, and made good on the state’s commitment to fully fund school 55 percent of education costs since it was mandated by votes in 2004. If privileged to serve another term, he would continue to prioritize these issues as well as working to bring economic development to the region.

“I would love to continue to give back to the community where I grew up and raised my family. I am grateful for the support and encouragement I have already received as I seek another term,” stated Representative White.

Before running for the State House, White was a long-time employee at Scott Paper Co., in Winslow up until the mill’s closure, then went back to school thanks to state job training programs to become a computer technician in the Winslow, China and Vassalboro schools before retiring in 2019.

Bruce and his wife, Doreen, have two children and two grandchildren. Bruce is dedicated to public service and serves on the Waterville Planning Board, New Dimensions Credit Union Board of Directors, Mid-Maine Technical Center, as well as volunteering with the Mid-Maine Chamber of Commerce and Northern Light Inland Hospital. Bruce is a past-president of United Paperworkers International Union Local 911.

White has already qualified for the June Primary Election ballot by collecting the necessary number of signature petitions.
