PATRICK WYNNE WORKS FOR US
Candidate for House District 55
A VOICE FOR YOU IN AUGUSTA
As an emergency medical provider, father of 3, City Councilor, Union Treasurer, and active member of his community, Patrick understands the day-to-day challenges that many of us face. He aims to provide a new voice to the conversations in Augusta that is more representative of us all.
He is proud to be a Clean Elections Candidate.
PROUD DEMOCRAT, FIREFIGHTER, ENVIRONMENTALIST, AND FATHER
Patrick is the father of three elementary school children in Hallowell. He is married to Cara Armstrong. They met when they both worked at Pine Tree Camp, a summer camp for people with disabilities in Rome, ME. Some of their earliest "dates" consisted of volunteering together at events hosted by Cara's year-round employer, the Family Violence Project. Now Cara is a school nurse, and Patrick is a career firefighter/paramedic.
Patrick won a seat on the Hallowell City Council by defeating a conservative incumbent in Hallowell's only ward that has more Republicans than Democrats. He is now in his second term. Recognizing the need for science-based public health policy, in the fall of 2019 he led the effort to establish Hallowell's Board of Health, which was in place by February 2020. His council work includes chairing the Health & Wellness Committee, Recreation Committee, and the Solar Power Task Force. He also serves on the Personnel & Policy, Hallowell All Age Friendly, and Protection Committees.
Beyond the city council, he is an active member of the Hall-Dale Elementary School PTO, a volunteer coach for youth sports, and treasurer of the International Association of Fire Fighters Local 1650.
He joined the Augusta Fire Department in 2014 after previously working as a paramedic with Delta Ambulance, as the head lifeguard at Kennebec Valley YMCA, and in various roles with non-profit agencies that provide services to clients experiencing homelessness and mental illness.
Patrick was a competitive runner in college. Now you might see him pushing one of his kids in a stroller as he trains. His most recent successes came last year with a top ten finish at the Millinocket Marathon and a second place finish at the Flight Deck Half Marathon
For a Better Future
For Our Planet
As a former outdoor educator, Patrick is passionate about natural resource protection. He has completed policy work on renewable energy at the local and state levels.
Patrick is a career paramedic. He witnesses how opioid addiction, poverty, and insufficient housing harm our neighbors, friends, and family. He knows that the rising cost of prescription medication burdens Mainers. Patrick promises to work just as hard in Augusta to solve these problems as he does on each of his emergency calls.
Patrick works 24-hour shifts at the fire department. He understands how it feels to come home tired but with his head held high from the dignity of work. He is on the Central Maine Labor Council and knows that workers benefit when they are able to have a seat at the table. Patrick will work to expand worker protections, education opportunities, and apprentice programs.
PROPERTY TAX RELIEF
In his capacity as a city councilor, Patrick is a strong advocate for state revenue sharing and state aid to education. Government should help housing be more affordable, and Maine can do this by easing the strain on town and city budgets.
