Senator Joe Perry


Born and raised in Bangor, Joe Perry attended John Bapst High School and the University of Maine at Orono, where he met his wife, Jane.

With strong roots in his community, Joe was inspired to run for public office by a desire to represent the people of his region and the state of Maine.

In 2008, Joseph Perry was re-elected to serve his third term as the Senator from District 32 in the 124th Maine Legislature. Senate District 32 includes the municipalities of Bangor and Hermon.

Prior to being elected to the Maine Senate in 2004, Senator Perry served in the House of Representatives for eight years. During his tenure in the House he served on the Banking and Insurance Committee and the Taxation Committee.

He currently serves as the Senate Chair of the Joint Standing Committee on Taxation, and also serves as a member of the Joint Standing Committee on Transportation. Senator Perry also serves as the Chair of the Senate Committee on Engrossed Bills.

Joe’s primary interests are to provide comprehensive tax reform that will include a reduction of the overall tax burden for Mainers with an emphasis on increasing the incomes of Maine families. In addition to tax reform, he is interested in making Maine more energy independent.

Currently, Joe lives in Bangor with his wife, and their two sons, Joseph and Kyle.
