Hon. Joel Stetkis
CHAIR, MAINE GOP
Joel Stetkis has been defending freedom and fighting for Republican principles through his entire life.
From his service in the US Air Force to his nearly two decades in politics, serving first as a Republican Town Committee Chair to his four terms in the Maine State House, with the last as Assistant Republican Leader, Joel has deep and strong roots in Maine and with the party.
A builder by trade, Joel’s focus throughout his time in politics has been making Maine a better place to work, play and raise a family.
His faith, focus on defending the Constitution and helping Maine’s working families has been the bedrock of his work in politics.
In the Maine Legislature, Joel served on various Labor, Commerce and Economic Development Committees and led the charge in opposing, and often defeating, much of the worst of progressive legislation by sticking to principle.
Joel has previously served in many positions in the Republican Party, including as State Committeeman from his home county of Somerset. Joel is currently a Somerset County Commissioner.
