Heather Sanborn, the co-owner of the Portland-based craft-brewery Rising Tide Brewing Co., handily won the race to represent District 43 in the Maine House of Representatives.
Sanborn, a Democrat who has no prior political experience and has never before sought political office, according to the Portland Press Herald, defeated Republican Jeffrey Langholtz with 64.9% of the vote, with 100% of the precincts reporting, according to the New York Times.
A 2015 Mainebiz Women to Watch, Sanborn was also the president of the Maine Brewer’s Guild from 2014-2016.
Rising Tide was also recognized in 2015 by Mainebiz as one Maine’s fastest-growing companies.
The nonprofit organization Brewers of America lauded Sanborn’s election, saying that the rapidly-growing beer industry needs to have brewery owners and employees run for office to have their voices heard on issues that directly impact the industry, including taxes, tasting room sales and depreciation costs.
