Meet Jared Golden

Jared was born in Lewiston and raised in Maine’s 2nd Congressional District. After the September 11th attacks, he enlisted in the Marine Corps infantry and served combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. After returning home, Jared used his veteran’s benefits to attend Bates College.

He was first elected to represent Lewiston in the Maine House of Representatives in 2014, and in 2016, was chosen by his peers to serve as the Democratic Assistant Majority Leader.

Jared is an experienced Democratic leader with a record of standing up for middle- and working-class values. He has fought for expanded access to healthcare, stronger unions, fairer wages, cleaner energy, stronger environmental standards, and lower prescription medication costs for Maine’s seniors. Jared continues to stand up for his community and his beliefs, and he has been able to deliver real results to the people he was elected to serve.
