Laurel Libby is serving her second term in the Maine House of Representatives and is a member of the Taxation Committee. A registered nurse, small business owner, and mother of five, she first engaged in state politics during a 2019 People’s Veto effort.
The following year, she ran for state representative, winning against a two-term Democrat incumbent. Throughout the Covid lockdowns, Representative Libby was a strong voice for freedom, advocating for the legislature to return to work and strip the governor of her dictatorial powers. She was removed from her committee after entering the capital without a mask in May 2021. A member of Young Americans for Liberty’s Hazlitt Coalition, Representative Libby was a leader in the efforts against the Covid vaccine mandates that crippled Maine’s healthcare infrastructure. She is focused on repealing Maine’s Certificate of Need law and implementing school choice.
In 2021, Representative Libby co-founded The Dinner Table, a grassroots political action committee with over 900 members, dedicated to the principles of limited government, free enterprise, personal responsibility, and individual liberty. The premier liberty organization in Maine, The Dinner Table is committed to training up grassroots activists and fighting for individual rights by helping conservative candidates win.
