Camden — A Camden woman has filed papers to seek the Maine House seat that represents the Camden area.

Democrat Victoria Doudera registered to run Feb. 10 for the Maine House District 94 seat that covers Camden, Rockport and Islesboro.

The seat is held by independent Rep. Owen Casas of Rockport.

No other candidates have filed for the seat.

Party candidates have until March 15 to file nomination papers with the Maine Secretary of State to get on the June 12 primary ballot. Unenrolled candidates (indpendents) have until May 25.

The general election is Nov. 6.

“I see a need in our community for strong, positive leadership in Augusta. For more than 30 years, I've been active in our towns -- as a businesswoman, community leader, mom and volunteer. I believe in clear communication, attentive listening and collaborative problem-solving. These are the qualities, along with my experience and energy, that I'll bring to the Legislature on behalf of our district," Doudera said Tuesday, Feb. 13, in a news release.

“As a realtor, I see firsthand the issues around rising property taxes and the need for affordable housing -- not just for low-income residents, but for our nurses, emergency workers, and young people just starting out -- people like my oldest son, who's just moved back to Maine with his fiancée. I know this is a big concern for many of us. Our environment – including clean energy and clean harbors – is important to me, as is access to health care and our economy. My husband and I raised three kids here, all of whom went to local schools, and I want all of our children to be able to settle in Maine, make a good living, and raise their families here, too.”

Doudera is the author of several books, including “Moving to Maine,” the third edition of which was published in 2014. A real estate broker with Camden Real Estate Co., she currently holds the position of secretary on the Camden Conservation Commission, is a board member of Midcoast Habitat for Humanity, and serves on the Outreach Committee of the First Congregational Church of Camden. She lives with her husband, attorney Edward Doudera.

Unless I am missing something, it is going to be hard to have a general election on June 6th when the primary is 6 days later on June 12th.
