Share or Comment

AUGUSTA — Soil and water conservation districts from across Maine recently participated in a Conservation District Day at the Statehouse Hall of Flags. Sen. Paul Davis, R-Sangerville, and several other legislators and senators stopped into the Hall of Flags to visit with district staff and discuss pertinent issues and concerns.

Maine Association of Conservation Districts President Andy Reed and Piscataquis County Soil and Water Conservation District Executive Director Joanna Tarrazi spoke with Davis about sustainable natural resource conservation initiatives in Piscataquis County and throughout the state.

Davis is chair of the Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry Committee and as a member of the State and Local Government Committee. Previously, he served as chair of the Inland Fisheries and Wildlife Committee and as a member of the Taxation Committee and Government Oversight Committee.

In 2014 Davis was elected to serve the constituents of Senate District 4, consisting of all towns in Piscataquis County as well as additional towns in both Penobscot and Somerset counties. Prior to being elected to the Senate for the 128th Maine State Legislature, Davis served four terms in the Maine State Senate — serving in leadership during three of those terms — and three terms in the Maine House of Representatives.

Davis spent 23 years as a Maine state trooper, serving primarily in Piscataquis County. He also served six years in the Army National Guard. A member of the Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine Board of Directors, he is an avid hunter, fisherman and snowmobiler.
