Aroostook Native Sharon Campbell Named State Director for Senator Angus King

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Today, U.S. Senator Angus King announced that Aroostook County native, Sharon Campbell, has been promoted to State Director. Campbell, who began her Senate career working for then U.S. Senator Olympia Snowe (R-ME), recently celebrated her 25th anniversary serving the people of Maine.

“I could not be more pleased to promote Sharon Campbell to State Director, a well-deserved honor that truly recognizes her selfless commitment to Aroostook County and the entirety of Maine,” said Senator King. “She has a long history of working on behalf of the people of Maine, first as an advocate for victims of domestic violence in northern Maine, and then as a Regional Representative in both my office and the office of my predecessor, Senator Olympia Snowe. Sharon represents the very best of Maine – demonstrating excellent leadership, extensive community service, and effective communication. With her experience in the community and deep understanding of the federal system, I have no doubt that she will continue to be a tremendous resource for constituents across the entire state.”

Sharon Campbell, a Houlton native – and long-time resident of Presque Isle - has been a public servant for Maine since 1999 when she began her tenure in the Presque Isle office of Senator Olympia Snowe. She worked for Snowe until 2013, covering the Aroostook County region. When Senator King was elected to office, Campbell continued her work for Maine as his Regional Representative for Aroostook County. Her primary responsibilities are to ensure that the constituents of Maine have both access to their elected Member of Congress and an advocate working on their behalf as issues with federal agencies arise.

Prior to her service in the Senate with Senator Olympia Snowe, she worked for 10 years as a court advocate for victims of domestic violence in northern Maine. Through that work, she connected with court officials, law enforcement, social service agencies, and state and federal government to affect policy changes on behalf of the victims.

Outside of her professional career, Campbell has been the past president of the Presque Isle Rotary Club, and an avid supporter of literacy efforts and aging issues within the community.
