Rep. Justin Fecteau
Proudly Serving House District 86:
Representative Justin Fecteau serves on the Joint Standing Committee on Education & Cultural Affairs
Representative Fecteau is an Augusta native raised on Sandhill, and an alumnus of both Saint Augustine and Cony High. As a United States Army Veteran, he knows what makes Maine one of the nation’s most patriotic places. He works to help make sure all returned and returning Veterans are given the care and entrepreneurial support they need. His goal is to make Maine one of our nation’s top places for Veterans.
Currently working as a high school teacher, Representative Fecteau knows firsthand what today’s youth are looking for in their young adult lives. As a member of the Joint Standing Committee on Education and Cultural Affairs, he has worked tirelessly to provide students and teachers support that is student-centered and makes Maine small businesses, community colleges, and universities a top choice for graduating seniors.
He believes “our students are our greatest investment, so we should come together to give teachers the tools they need to succeed in the classroom.”
