My name is John Andrews and I am the current Representative for western Maine's District 73. I am running to represent District 79 in the next Legislature (This is because of re-districting). I've been married for 15 years to my wonderful wife Jeannette who is a Physican at Western Maine OB/GYN. We are blessed with two children who are 5 and 9 years old. Both are students at the Elementary School in Paris where we live.
I've been the Vice-Chair of the Paris Select Board and Chair of the Paris Economic Development Committee.
Currently, I am the Vice President of Waterford Fish and Game.
I enjoy coaching youth Football and Lacrosse in the Oxford Hills. I also enjoy competitive pistol shooting when time allows.
I am a Republican and constitutional conservative. I believe in the rule of law and the maximum absence of coercion from government. The Bill of Rights is a list of restrictions placed by citizens upon the government. We must never forget that. I believe in limited government, individual liberty and Federalism.
My voting record in Augusta reflects these principles.
I first got into politics to defend our gun rights and that has grown into being a leading voice in defending all of our liberties in Augusta. Limited government, by and for the people, is what we need. We accomplish this by de-regulation and lessening the control that the administrative state has over our everyday lives.
If we want lower taxes, we must reduce the size and scope of government.
