House Republican Leader

Proudly Serving House District 72: Oxford, Otisfield & Mechanic Falls

Prior to being chosen by her peers to lead the House Republican Caucus in 2018, she served two terms on the Veterans and Legal Affairs Committee.

Coming from a military family herself, Representative Dillingham has advocated for improving job opportunities and benefits for all generations of Maine veterans.

First elected in 2014, Kathleen had no need for “on the job training” when it came to looking out for her constituents in western Maine— she had spent her career staffing dozens of lawmakers where she took pride working collaboratively to advance legislation and helping people navigate state agencies.

Public service runs deep within her family. Her father Roger Jackson served as an Oxford Selectman and State Representative, and her uncle Caldwell served as a Selectman and Oxford County Commissioner. Her uncle Philip served in the Maine House and Senate. Most recently her husband Dana Dillingham was elected to the Oxford Board of Selectmen as well. Like her father and uncles before her, Kathleen has never forgotten who she’s working for.

Government Oversight Committee

Leader Dillingham also has the distinction of serving on the Joint Legislative Government Oversight Committee, which oversees program evaluation and government accountability in State government.

The Committee seeks to ensure that public funds are expended for intended purposes, and that programs and activities are effectively, efficiently and economically managed. The Committee accomplishes this mission by conducting public inquiries and directing the Office of Program Evaluation and Government Accountability to conduct independent, objective reviews of State agencies and programs and other entities receiving public funds or expending private monies for public purposes.

Rep. Dillingham also serves on the Citizen Trade Policy Commission.
