For nearly 20 years, Amy has been an active Falmouth community member, serving on the Falmouth Memorial Library’s Board of Trustees, the Falmouth Food Pantry, the schools, youth booster organizations, and more.
Since 2018, Amy has served on the Falmouth Town Council and served as Council Chair from 2019-2022. In addition, during that time Amy served as Chair of the Greater Portland Council of Government’s Metro Region Coalition (comprised of the City of Portland and six surrounding communities) and represented Senate District 25 on the Maine Municipal Association’s Legislative Policy Committee.
Throughout her Council service, Amy has prioritized protecting Falmouth’s natural environment, supporting Falmouth’s high quality public education, and investing taxpayer funds carefully to provide critical services and expand senior tax relief while retaining one of the lowest mil rates in the region. She was also a leader in the community’s vision and values project, resulting in a nuanced understanding of Falmouth residents’ hopes and concerns for the future. Amy strives to exemplify a thoughtful, open-minded, and hardworking leader who is strong, collaborative, and responsive.
Amy holds a B.A. from Goucher College, a J.D. from George Washington University Law School, and is a member of the Maine Bar. Amy moved from Portland to Falmouth in 2004 with her husband Jamie because they wanted to raise their three kids in a great community with outstanding schools and easy access to recreation. In her free time, Amy can often be found walking to Town Landing and the Falmouth Nature Preserve with her two dogs, enjoying time out on Casco Bay, or skiing and snowshoeing in Rangeley.

Falmouth has a decades-long history of sending talented people to represent them in Augusta. We are fortunate to have Amy Kuhn ready and willing to continue that tradition in the Maine House of Representatives. She has served in numerous volunteer roles, led the town’s strategic planning efforts as Town Council Chair and constructively engaged with every resident who has sought her opinion or had a need from town government. That’s what you can expect if she is elected in November. I hope you’ll join me in supporting Amy.
Amy has proven her leadership, integrity and willingness to listen to all residents. She will work to build consensus for the strongest community benefit.
High quality public education is an important driver for Maine’s future. We should support our K-12 students by providing schools with the resources they need to help all students catch up from the pandemic and go on to thrive. To do that, it is critical that the state continue to meet its 55% funding commitment. We can also provide opportunities for prosperity and help meet our work force needs by increasing access to higher education, including community colleges and the trades.
Maine needs to invest in clean, renewable energy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, while growing good jobs in green industries. We must also cultivate our climate change resilience to mitigate impacts, including protecting vulnerable populations in our communities and vulnerable industries that are important to the state’s economy. Finally, we must safeguard our open spaces and natural resources to preserve what makes Maine a great place to live.
We need to continue with strong fiscal policies that will keep taxes as low as possible while providing for important priorities such as high quality education, preserving our natural environment for future generations, and supporting seniors so they can age in place.
Maine has strong protections for our free and fair elections. I am committed to safeguarding those protections so that all eligible voters have access to the ballot.
Decisions about reproductive healthcare are private and should be made between patients and their providers. Fortunately, Maine has strong protections that safeguard access to reproductive healthcare. I am committed to defending these longstanding protections.
As we move into fall, many Maine families are struggling with high cost of living. Although there is no easy fix for this global problem, we should make sure that our neighbors are able to access all the support that is available now, including home heating assistance, prescription drug savings for seniors and people with disabilities, and the recently adopted senior property tax relief program. We should also continue to incentivize energy efficient home heating options that reduce carbon emissions and cost less to operate.
