Election 2020- Col Duncan Milne - Candidate: Maine Senate District #11

Duncan Milne is the Republican candidate for Maine Senate District 11, which represents Waldo County. The retired Marine colonel is running against Democrat Glen "Chip" Curry for the seat being vacated by Erin Herbig, now city manager of Belfast.

Originally from Cape Elizabeth, he and his wife now live in Liberty, and he is president of the Dixon Center, which advocates in local communities for programs to benefit veterans, working with public and private organizations.

He told The Republican Journal in an interview earlier this year that he wants to reduce both taxes and regulations, especially regulations that apply to business. “They’re regulating this or regulating that. It’s just not a fertile environment for business,” he said. “So, when you combine that with all these tax increases and program expansion, who’s going to be the bill payer for that down the road? Because there’s going to be a bill to be paid.”

Milne would like to see more emphasis on career and technical education, rather than having all students attend a four-year college from which they will emerge with few marketable skills and a large debt.
