I’m Steve Woods, a proud Democrat who hopes to serve the residents of Maine State Senate District 25 (Chebeague Island, Cumberland, Falmouth, Gray, Long Island, portion of Westbrook, and Yarmouth.) These are challenging times that demand proactive strategies and I believe I possess the business, civic, and governmental leadership and experience necessary to effectively represent each and every resident of District 25- as well as to contribute to finding solutions to the many policy challenges we face as a state.
In my 35-year business career, I have traveled and worked in all 50 states, more than 20 countries, with hundreds of companies large and small. I have also served in numerous charitable organizations, civic roles, and town government, having recently served the last four years on the Yarmouth Town Council (last 3 as Chairman.) My wife Katie and our three children Emily, Cammy, and Zack call Maine home because we live in a special place - in my mind and heart – the most special place in the world, not just for its unique beauty, but for the spirit and character of the people we call neighbors, friends and family.
My focus as an accomplished business leader, local government leader, and community leader has been, and will continue to be finding positive and smart solutions to complex and challenging problems. I am looking forward to meeting as many SD #25 residents as possible between now and November 4, 2014 as I listen to and learn about the individual concerns from our citizens.
