Maine Senator Linda Valentino of Saco Won’t Seek Re-election


PPH reports “Democratic state Sen. Linda Valentino, a longtime legislator from Saco, is expected to announce that she will not run for re-election, according to several Democratic sources. Valentino plans to announce her decision to retire from politics following the caucus on Sunday.

State Reps. Barry Hobbins and Justin Chenette, both Democrats from Saco, say they plan to run for her seat in the Maine Senate.

“Barring a last-minute reconsideration by Sen. Valentino, my hat’s in the ring,” Hobbins said in a press release.

Chenette, who is serving his second term in the House, said he has long considered Valentino a close mentor and friend. and “wants to continue the legacy she’s laid down.”

Well, now Rep. Barry Hobbins will put on his “senate” hat and bounce back to the Senate! And Justin Chenette “wants to continue” her legacy. Please no!

Any wonder why the sad state of affairs? How can positive change come about with the same players?

On February 23, 2016 it was reported that Sen. David Burns, R-Whiting, announced Monday that he’s not running for re-election in 2016.

Hopefully with the departure of these two senators, someone with knowledge of the constitution and some common sense, will replace these two senators who failed miserably in their duties, oaths and obligations to the people.

  1. The old saying, (watch your friends close and watch your enemies closer) while I know Valinteno is the enemy I have not paid much attention to her, but what I have read about her the people will be much better of with her in the pasture then the STATE HOUSE, so maybe she should be thanked for staying home and keeping her stupidy there with her.
