Representative Kathleen Shaw
  Representing: Auburn (Part)
District #88

Kathy Shaw is serving her first term in the Maine House of Representatives. She sits on the Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry Committee.

Kathy is a lifelong farmer, landscaper and small business owner who has been a familiar face and voice at Auburn city council meetings. She believes that we should look towards small farm encouragement, land and natural resource preservation and keeping the way of life we all enjoy in Maine for our future generations and those that come to enjoy our abundant clean air and outdoor living experience.

Kathy is the longtime president of the Cumberland Farmers’ Market that operates and oversees two thriving seasonal markets in Falmouth and Cumberland. In addition to her farm and market duties, she serves as a supervisor on the Androscoggin/Sagadahoc Soil and Water Conservation district, is the chair of the Auburn Natural Products and Agriculture working group and a member of Auburn's Regulatory Advisory Board.

More at home outdoors working with her Katahdin sheep, livestock guardian dogs and all her farm animals, Kathy is committed to working across the aisle and doing her part to build a stronger working partnership between the parties in Augusta.
