Rep. Karen Vachon
Rep. Vachon enters her first term in the Maine House of Representatives representing the good people of District 29 which includes coastal Scarborough.
Rep. Vachon is a self-employed licensed health insurance agent and says, by virtue of her profession, she has seen the turmoil of the Affordable Care Act and that, coupled with other concerns, compelled her to run for office.
Rep. Vachon says the key to Maine’s success is “building sustainability to get away from tax and spend; it’s about working together to pragmatically tap into Maine’s natural resources to optimize energy, lower costs, and protect our environment. It’s about crafting a budget where educational and infrastructure no longer takes a back seat to bloated welfare programs. It’s about finding common sense solutions to move Maine forward and to change the political environment in Maine away from Washington style gridlock. These changes will put money back in the pockets of Maine people to spend freely and grow Maine’s economy.”
She will serve on the Labor, Commerce, Research and Economic Development Committee in the 128th Legislature. Rep. Vachon served on the Health and Human Services Committee in the 127th Legislature.
