AUGUSTA- Today, the Maine GOP is excited to announce the hiring of Rebecca Telega and Justin Davis as Regional Field Directors for the upcoming 2018 Cycle due to the historic partnership with the Republican National Committee.
“We are living in historic times in our country, and that’s why it’s so important for us to keep the Blaine House in November and compete for new seats up and down the ticket, and Rebecca and Justin will help us do just that,” said Jason Savage, Executive Director of the Maine GOP. “Maine is moving in the right direction thanks to Governor LePage and the Republican reform agenda which has led to record unemployment, higher wages, and less government.”
“With Rebecca and Justin, we’ve not only hired two people that bring a fire and passion for politics, but also, and perhaps most importantly, a deep-rooted love for Maine and our people.”
BACKGROUND ON REBECCA TELEGA
Rebecca Telega started as an academic intern for the Maine Republican Party and quickly became a rising star in the party due to her work ethic and skills as an organizer. This experience helped pave her success as a Field Representative for the Maine GOP Freedom 14’ Damariscotta Office in 2014 and as Field Director for the Maine Republican Party in the highly successful 2016 Cycle.
“I feel honored to have been given such a great new opportunity. The staff of the Maine GOP work tirelessly in their efforts to benefit the people of Maine, and I’m so happy that I get to continue to be a part of that alongside Chair Kouzounas, Jason, and the rest Maine GOP staff,” said Telega.
BACKGROUND ON JUSTIN DAVIS
Justin Davis brings loads of experience though his work with Senator Susan Collins. As a former Caseworker and Staff Assistant to the Senator and a Field Representative for Senator Collins’ 2014 re-election campaign, Justin demonstrated a work ethic and energy matched by few. Prior to joining the GOP, Justin served as Clerk on the House Committee on Natural Resources in Washington D.C.
“I’m excited to come home and be a part of Maine’s success by working with Republican activists and candidates across Maine. Chair Kouzounas and Jason have brought real leadership that’s easy for all of us at the Maine GOP to get behind because of their commitment to winning and improving the lives of the hard-working Maine people,” said Davis.
Justin and Rebecca will both assume their new positions on September 1st, 2017.
