Representative Donald G. Marean
Rep. Don Marean is serving his first term in four years representing District 131, which includes part of Buxton and Hollis. Rep. Marean served in the 122nd and 123rd Legislatures (2005-2008).
Don resides in Hollis, where he owned small businesses for 40 years and also served on the Board of Selectmen. He ran for election this year to work on Maine's job shortage and high costs of energy and health care, as well as raise agricultural awareness. He says the most important thing government can do to improve the economy, besides creating a positive business climate, is promoting higher education in specialized fields that will bring in new companies and help existing businesses.
Don is a member of the Buxton Masonic Lodge and past chairman of the board of Land for Maine's Future. He enjoys travel, horses, farming, and public service. Don and his wife, Linda, have three children: Shirley, Dawn, and Christine.
