NEW GLOUCESTER — Voters will go to the polls Tuesday, June 13, to elect a selectman and a school board member, and validate the school budget.

Polls will be open from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the Fire Station, 611 Lewiston Road.

Joseph “Joe” Davis is seeking a three-year selectman’s seat. He is unopposed for the position held by Jane Sturgis, who is not seeking re-election.

“I’m running because I’d like to see our small town stay small,” he said. “We pride ourselves for being rural and a family-centered community. My heart and soul belong to this town,” he said.

Davis, who serves on the Public Works Committee, said he also wants to to keep taxes low.

The 40-year-old father of two boys grew up in New Gloucester. He is employed at the Walmart Distribution Center in Lewiston.


He is a den leader and assistant Cub Scout master for Pack 135. He is a member of Cumberland Lodge No. 12 and volunteers to mow the Penny Road baseball field.

Gary Harriman is seeking his fourth term on the School Administrative District 15 board of directors as a write-in candidate. He reminds voters to fill in the circled area on the ballot and correctly spell his name on the line.

Harriman said he is excited to see construction projects at the Gray-New Gloucester middle and high schools, and Memorial and Dunn schools.

Harriman serves on four school district committees: facilities, personnel, finance and curriculum.

He works for Regional School Unit 14 in Windham as a videographer, following a 30-year career for Channel 6 as a videographer.

He and his wife are the parents of two adult children.
