John Michael (politician)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

John M. Michael is a former American state legislator. Michael was born in Lewiston, Maine and represented a portion of Auburn in the Maine House of Representatives from 1978–1986, 1990–1994 and 2000–2002.[1]

In 1994 he ran for US Congress as an Independent and received 8.8% of the vote. In 2002, Michael ran as an independent candidate for governor of Maine.[2][3] He unsuccessfully sought clean elections funds and received 2.1% of the vote.[4] Michael ran again for governor in 2006, but withdrew in August because he again failed to qualify for "Clean Election" candidate funds.[4][5] Included in his platform was an anti-gambling plank that would have closed Indian casinos.[6]

He also led several citizen initiatives, including two regarding term-limits for elected officials and the 2000 repeal of the "snack tax".[1]

In 2018, Michael was elected to represent part of Auburn on the Androscoggin County Commission.
