Laura Supica is a caring person who is passionate about our city. She loves that Bangor provides many services but has never lost its small-town touch. As a member of this community, she has been tirelessly serving Bangor for more than six years. Often having two jobs, she has worked for local businesses by day and waited tables by night. Laura’s hard work paid off in 2015, when she was able to buy her own home near the Thomas Hill Standpipe, completing a lifelong dream.
After volunteering her time as an Elder Buddy helping to distribute food to seniors in need, providing rides to the grocery store and doing in-home visits, Laura now proudly serves on the board for the Eastern Area Agency on Aging where she is able to make decisions about important programming where she has seen firsthand what her community seniors need to age in place. Laura also is the Board Chair of the Together Place and serves on the Downtown Bangor Partnership board. Laura also has volunteered for the Mabel Wadsworth Center, helping to organize their 2017 gala, and she currently is a member of their development committee.
As Bangor continues to grow, Laura wants to retain our supportive small community feel while maximizing the amenities and opportunities that a larger city can provide. Her priorities include better road and sidewalk maintenance and extending bus service so that accessibility and mobility are never a barrier for any of Bangor's residents. Laura is committed to making Bangor a more attractive place for young people to stay and for families to work and thrive, and a location that will entice businesses to invest.
Laura sees what an amazing, supportive community Bangor can be and keeps that in mind when she's in the House Chamber in Augusta. Leadership like hers that is making a commitment to Bangor’s future and working together, Laura knows we can continue to look at our city with pride.
