Democrat incumbents hold Maine House Districts 150 and 151

FORT KENT, Maine — Incumbent Maine House of Representatives Roland “Danny” Martin and John Martin, both Democrats, maintained their seats in Districts 150 and 151, respectively. 

Voters in House District 150 favored Rep. Danny Martin over challenger Republican Aaron Cyr, with votes of 2680 to 1793. 

Maine House District 150 encompasses Frenchville, Grand Isle, Madawaska, St. Agatha and Van Buren, plus the unorganized territory of Square Lake (including Cross Lake, Madawaska Lake and Sinclair Townships).

“I’d like to thank the voters of my House District for their continued support,” Danny Martin said Friday. “I’ll continue to serve all the citizens regardless of their political affiliation. The 130th Legislature will be challenging, especially with dealing with the current pandemic and shortfall in projected revenues. Much needed services currently being provided by the state government may be curtailed. And funding for our state agencies may have to be adjusted.”

In Maine House District 151, voters cast their ballots 2711-2077 in favor of incumbent John Martin over Republican challenger Kevin Bushey. 

The district encompasses Allagash, Ashland, Eagle Lake, Fort Kent, Masardis, New Canada, Portage Lake, St. Francis, Wallagrass and Plantations of Garfield, Nashville, Oxbow, St. John and Winterville, plus the unorganized territory of Northwest Aroostook. 

Rep. John Martin said he is “very pleased” voters in the district returned him to his Maine House seat, and is looking forward to getting back to the business of serving his constituents. 

“I want to thank the people of my district for having supported me,” John Martin said.

Martin said Democratic Maine Sen. Troy Jackson will retain his position as Senate president and the House will choose leadership next week in Augusta. 

“I intend to reapply and expect to be appointed to the appropriations committee again,” he said.
