#Gen207 Releases Inaugural “40 under 40” Award List

AUGUSTA- The Maine Republican Party’s official youth initiative, #Gen207, released its inaugural “40 under 40” list today.

Over the past couple of months, Republican activists and leaders had the opportunity to nominate Maine Republicans under the age of 40 who are making a positive difference in their professions or communities, whether in public life, business, education, or other areas.

“The Maine GOP celebrates these extraordinary individuals not because they represent our future. They are moving Maine forward now in significant leadership roles,” said Maine GOP Chairman Rick Bennett. “They are in the forefront of an invigorating wave of young Mainers across the spectrum in the Republican Party. We welcome their involvement and leadership, and we look forward to supporting hundreds more young Republicans as they seek elected office and positions of leadership across Maine.”

“We are thrilled to recognize these #Gen207 40-under-40 award recipients,” said Jason Savage, executive director of the Maine GOP. “These exceptional leaders embody the purpose of #Gen207, to rejuvenate our party by empowering our youngest members.”
