Second session with perfect attendance

May 12, 2016

AUGUSTA – Rep. Bob Duchesne was present for 100 percent of the roll call votes for the legislative session that wrapped up in April.

“Decisions on our natural resources-based economy, outdoor heritage, government accountability and many other issues that impact our region are made in Augusta,” said Duchesne, D-Hudson. “It’s my job to make sure my constituents’ voices are heard at the State House. The true source of common sense is found right here at home.”

Rep. Michelle Dunphy, D-Old Town, finished the session with near-perfect attendance. She was present for 99.5 percent of roll call votes taken. The 127th Legislature took a total of 214 roll call votes during its second regular sessions. All votes were taken between Jan. 12, 2016, and April 29, 2016. Roll call attendance percentages are compiled each session by the Clerk of the House.

Duchesne is serving his fifth term in the Maine House, having previously served from 2005 to 2012. He is House chair of the Inland Fisheries and Wildlife Committee and a member of both the Government Oversight Committee and the Environment and Natural Resources Committee. He represents Alton, Argyle, Corinth, Hudson and Milford.

Dunphy is serving her first term in the Maine House. She represents Old Town and Penobscot Indian Island and serves on the Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry Committee.
