Candidate for Maine State House District 105
Representative HD# 105, North Yarmouth/Gray
It is my honor to be the new State Representative for House District 105 serving North Yarmouth and Gray, Maine. I serve on the Health and Human Services Committee.
As a retired pediatric nurse practitioner with over 35 years of experience, I always put my patients first. I worked with families from all walks of life and learned how to listen to and talk to anyone, no matter their background. In today’s divided world I have the skills it takes to listen to and work with anyone, and as your Representative in Augusta I’ll work across the aisle to move our state forward and work on what matters most to the people of Gray and North Yarmouth.
In addition to extensive volunteer work, I’ve served on the North Yarmouth Select Board, and represented Gray, North Yarmouth, and Pownal in the Maine House of Representative from 2010-2014. I know what it takes to get the job done. I am proud to have a proven record of working across the aisle to find the best solution, not the partisan solution. I care about our towns because this is where I’ve built my life–my husband and I raised our three sons right here in North Yarmouth, my husband is a Greely soccer coach and substitute teacher, and we’ve lived here for almost three decades.
"Annie is a bridge builder and works with everyone to find the best solutions to Maine's problems. She has proved that she can, and she'll go to Augusta and do it again."
Matt Jacobson, Former Republican Candidate for Maine Governor, North Yarmouth
“We have always admired Annie's energy, and her long time engagement in town and state government. She is a hard worker--and we need that in Augusta!”
Katie Murphy and Peter Lindsay, North Yarmouth
”Having a voice in Augusta is very important. Having a voice that understands the needs of the elderly, retirees and young families. Annie knows first hand the issues facing our towns. We support a strong voice in Augusta. We ask you to join us to elect Annie Graham to the Maine House.”

I will be a strong advocate for affordable health care, including lowering the cost of prescription drugs and health insurance coverage for all. I firmly believe in public health and strong prevention initiatives. As a retired nurse practitioner, I know prevention is far easier and more effective than treating illness.
I will fight to keep property taxes affordable. I will work to ensure that our communities receive fair state revenue sharing, state funding programs such as those that support affordable housing and federal dollars through the American Recovery Act.
I will work to keep Maine’s children and their families safe, educated and healthy through bipartisan legislation. I support and trust our educators to teach our children about history and science based on facts.
I will work for a clean environment and a sustainable energy future by supporting solar, wind, geothermal, tidal energy sources, and use of EVs. I will work to preserve our open spaces for the enjoyment of present and future Mainers and visitors to our beautiful state.
I support the Maine Democrats' Platform particularly around the issues of Choice, Freedom, Equality, Health and Safety. I encourage you to read it and join me in our mission to elect positive public servants to the Maine House, Senate and Blaine House.
Maine is one large small town. I am blessed to live in one of those little towns. In these times of turmoil in our country, community holds us together. We must care for one another regardless of race, gender, ethnicity or who we love.
