On Wednesday, Maine Democratic Party Chair Drew Gattine announced that he has appointed Gaetan Davis to become the new Executive Director of MDP. 

“I am thrilled to welcome Gaetan to our team!” said Chair Gattine. “She brings a wealth of experience, a high level of political acumen, and a relentless passion for the work. With her leadership, we can build on our successes and continue to get Democrats elected up and down the ballot, all across our state.” 

“As a lifelong Mainer, I am incredibly excited to serve our state with MDP,” said Davis. “The Party has dynamic leaders, tremendous staff, and dedicated volunteers in communities across Maine. We could not be better positioned to continue delivering for Maine’s working families.”

Davis grew up in Maine, graduated from Smith College, and returned to serve her home state. She was a Regional Field Director for the Maine Senate Democratic Campaign Committee, helping to secure wins in legislative races. She was a member of Congressman Golden’s Washington, D.C. staff, and most recently served as the Maine Finance Director for Speaker Sara Gideon’s run for U.S. Senate, where she helped to set new state fundraising records. 

Davis lives in Portland with her partner and their dog, Muskie.
