Kittery’s DONALD HANDS running for House 2020


My name is Donald Hands and I am running for the Maine legislature district one as an independent candidate which represents most of Kittery and Kittery Point. We as a nation and as a community are facing unprecedented times. Protection from the COVID 19 virus is essential.

As a result of this precautions, I will not be going ‘door to door’ for support until it is safe to do so. While I look forward to meeting you face to face – that will have to wait for another day.

I currently serve as a board member of the Kittery Celebration Committee and the Oak Grove Cemetery Association.  As a retired Portsmouth Naval Shipyard worker and past board member of the Seacoast Shipyard Association; (SSA)

I support and know the importance of the shipyard to our local economy. Many of you know that I volunteer for multiple charities and groups and provide lectures at the Star Theater. I have proven for years that I am committed to this community and Kittery’s history.

As a Veteran and past American Legion post commander – I am a staunch advocate for veterans.  I served the American Federation of Government Employees for over a decade as a Chief Steward and realize the importance of labor and management working together.

I have a Master’s degree in Organization Development which I earned as a non- traditional student. I see the importance of providing educational opportunities to all. I will work with the State of Maine to increase school funding as it should never have been touched.

I am running as a clean elections candidate and not accepting special interest moneys. I am counting on us as a united people to be part of this campaign.

I would appreciate your support and ask that you please donate $5.00 to my campaign either in cash or by check made out to MAINE CLEAN ELECTION FUND (MCEF) and call me at 1-(207)-703-2727. Another option is to donate $5.00 to the Maine Clean Elections fund which will help fund this campaign. The website is: and click on the green contribute tab.
