Diane Russell

Former Maine State Rep
Maine House of Representatives

State Rep. Diane Russell represents the 39th District in the Maine House of Representatives. Since gaining her seat in 2008, she has been very active in her role as state representative. This includes being named “Most Valuable State Representative” in 2011 by The Nation, the same year that she introduced legislation that aimed to legalize marijuana in her state. Despite the bill losing against strong opposition, both in committee and in the full state House, Rep. Russell refused to give up and raised similar bills in multiple sessions.
