Representative Daniel Ankeles
  Representing: Part of Brunswick
District # 100

Rep. Dan Ankeles is serving his first term in the Maine House of Representatives. He is a member of the Transportation Committee.

Prior to becoming a lawmaker, Ankeles worked as a legislative aide in the House Democratic Office for nine years. He has also worked as a public radio producer, organized campaigns for his fellow Democrats and defended Maine’s same-day voter registration law in a 2011 referendum campaign. Ankeles is an at-large member of the Brunswick Town Council, where he has advocated successfully for conservation, public education and the creation of Brunswick’s new Housing Committee.

Top local priorities for Ankeles include replacing the aging stormwater system on the former naval air base and removing harmful PFAS chemicals, reducing local dependence on regressive property taxation, supporting Brunswick's working waterfront and the health of its rivers and coastline, making it easier to lower speed limits and expanding bicycle and pedestrian trails between Brunswick and neighboring communities.

Ankeles enjoys learning languages, exercising, games and family time. He and his wife Catherine have lived in Brunswick since 2011 and are raising their two children in Brunswick schools.
