AUBURN – Republican state Rep. Laurel Libby of Auburn is seeking a second term for House District 90, which includes Minot and part of Auburn.

Libby, who owns an interior decorating business, said in a news release Monday that she has become “a known advocate for disenfranchised communities.”

She will face Democrat Amy Dieterich of Auburn in the Nov. 8 general election. There is no contested primary in the district.

Libby, who serves on the Judiciary Committee, said in her news release that “the best decisions are made when everyone has had the opportunity to participate in their government.”

“Whether it’s lowering gas prices by 30 cents a gallon, promoting educational choice or supporting our elderly citizens, I am not shy about bucking the establishment in order to give voice to those who feel shut out of the political process,” Libby said.

“Maine citizens are smarter than the people who have been making decisions for them, and smarter with their own money,” she said. Libby said that if she wins another term, she will “support economic policies that grow our economy by increasing family budgets.”

Before starting her interior decorating business, which focuses on real estate staging, Libby was a registered nurse and part of a federal disaster relief team.

Both born and raised in Maine, Libby and her husband, John, are raising five children in Auburn. Libby described herself as a home-schooler who is “a strong advocate for educational choice.”
