Congressman Bruce Poliquin is a third generation Mainer from a big-hearted Franco-American family.

Like most central Maine families struggling to get by, Congressman Poliquin’s parents worked hard, spent wisely, and always made time to help their neighbors and volunteer at church. These values led Congressman Poliquin to run for public office and he continues to call on them as the Representative for Maine’s Second Congressional District.

After being elected to Congress, Congressman Poliquin was appointed to the House Financial Services Committee where he works on a wide range of issues related to providing oversight of the financial services sector and helping to grow the American economy.

Prior to Congress, Congressman Poliquin started his business career in Chicago and then the City. It was a big adjustment and tough environment for a small town kid from Maine. However, he worked hard and learned what it takes to create jobs and grow an economy.

In 1989, Congressman Poliquin and his high school sweetheart returned home to Maine and got married. They were excited to start their own family back in Maine among family and long-time friends. Their wonderful son, Sam, was born the following year.

Shortly thereafter, a family tragedy left Congressman Poliquin raising Sam as a single dad while he was still in diapers and using bottles. Congressman Poliquin quickly learned first-hand how fragile and precious life is. He has a deep understanding of how rewarding but challenging it is to raise a child alone.

As State Treasurer, he advanced fiscal discipline, business common sense, and real solutions to Maine’s serious problems. His goal has been to help build a pro-economic growth climate that creates more jobs, less welfare, more liberty, and better lives for our citizens. He helped lead the successful initiative to better secure the retirement benefits for Maine teachers and state employees while addressing the State’s fiscal crisis.

In Congress, Congressman Poliquin will continue to use his life, business and government experiences to help hard-working businesses grow, create jobs and grow Maine’s economy.
