Thomas MacMillan (b. September 8, 1986) was a 2014 Green Party candidate for District 35 of the Maine House of Representatives.[1]


MacMillan states, "I am a lifelong Portland resident who grew up in poverty, which is what has largely created my platform and drawn me to the Maine Green Independent Party." He works in education, including two years as a substitute teacher and education technician in public schools and community organizer for Working America. MacMillan is the Secretary of the Maine Green Independent Party Steering Committee and Board member of the West End Neighborhood Association.[2]

MacMillan earned his B.A. in International Development and Social Change from Clark University in 2009.[2]


Campaign themes


In information submitted to Ballotpedia, MacMillan outlined major themes of his campaign:[2]

  • "Work to restore our social safety net, secure health care as a human right and create a full employment economy."
  • "Combat growing inequality and create demand for local growth by raising taxes on the wealthiest Mainers"
  • "Insist on raising the minimum wage to a living wage and defend collective bargaining rights for all workers."
  • "Use my experience as an educator, graduate of Portland Schools, member of Seeds of Peace and Big Brothers / Big Sisters, to speak for the needs of our students and schools.'
  • 'Ensure that the state pays its legally obligated fair share of the school budget. This will bring down property taxes and uphold our responsibility to educate the next generation."
  • "Establish universal, free higher education for qualified Maine students."
  • "Demand equal protection for all relationships, including supporting same-sex marriage."
  • "Fight for equal rights for all marginalized groups, including LGBT youth, immigrants, refugees and all other vulnerable populations."
