Nichi Farnham Announces Candidacy

Bangor -

Former City Council Chair to run for District 32 Senate Seat

BANGOR – Nichi Farnham is pleased to announce that she will seek the Republican nomination for the District 32 Senate seat, representing the towns of Bangor and Hermon.

“During my service on the City Council, I approached challenges facing the city with an open mind and made decisions based on my experience, good research, and common sense.”

Farnham was elected to the Bangor City Council in 1997 and served for seven years, including one year as the city’s mayor. She currently serves on the Bangor School Committee and the boards of Eastern Maine Healthcare System, Bangor Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, United Way of Eastern Maine, and the Bangor Y. Farnham is also committee member of the Komen Maine Race for the Cure and Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve; and a member of the board of corporators for Bangor Target Area Development Corporation, and the Phillips-Strickland House.

“Working with these groups, I’ve gained valuable experience and insights into an array of issues affecting the Bangor region. The common theme is that our state government is inefficient, ineffective, and not meeting our expectations while spending more of the taxpayers’ money and getting fewer results for Maine.”

Farnham is a graduate of the United States Air Force Academy and a former Air Force officer. She lives in Bangor with her husband, Doug Farnham, president and fourth-generation owner of Getchell Bros., a local ice company, and a pilot with the 101st Air Refueling Wing of the Maine Air National Guard. They have three sons, Scott, Carl and Gary.

“As the mother of three boys, and the wife of a small business owner, it is critical that we roll up our sleeves and get to work improving the business climate. I have confidence Maine’s private sector can create the jobs necessary to ensure the next generation can stay here to live, work, and raise families.”
