Representative Heidi Brooks
  Representing: Lewiston (part)
District #61

Rep. Heidi Brooks is serving her fourth term in the Maine House of Representatives. She is a native of the Lewiston-Auburn area and graduated in the top 10 of her high school class. Brooks went on to earn a bachelor's degree at Boston College and a medical degree at New York Medical College. After completing an internship and residency in internal medicine at St. Elizabeth's Medical Center in Brighton, Mass., she returned to Maine.

Brooks has served on the Health Coverage, Insurance and Financial Services Committee and will continue to serve on this committee. She initially became politically active around healthcare issues, advocating for improved access and affordability. Brooks has come to appreciate that healthcare is intimately linked to having a safe place to call home, food security, access to uncontaminated water, livable wage employment, lifelong learning opportunities, transportation and our environment. She supports addressing discrimination in all of its forms. She is firmly rooted in evidence based scientific solutions to our current coronavirus crisis.
