In 2018, Henry Beck was elected by a Joint Convention of the House and Senate as State Treasurer.
Treasurer Beck's public service began when he was elected to represent his neighborhood on the Waterville City Council in 2005. In 2008, he was elected to the Maine House of Representatives representing parts of Waterville and Oakland during his senior year at Colby College. In the Legislature, he was appointed House Chair of Joint Standing Committee on Insurance and Financial Services and to serve on the 2011 Commission to Apportion Maine's Congressional Districts.
Treasurer Beck attended the University of Maine School of Law and graduated on time while serving in the Legislature and practiced law prior to serving as Treasurer. He also holds an MBA from the Leonard Stern School of Business at New York University.
Treasurer Beck's family came to central Maine nearly one hundred years ago and started a roofing company that is still operating. He is not the first Treasurer with Waterville roots, serving after Treasurers Sam Shapiro, David G. Lemoine, and Bruce L. Poliquin. Treasurer Beck is a George J. Mitchell Scholar and serves as an adviser to the American Legion Dirigo program.
