Rep. Lynn H. Copeland is serving her first term in the Maine House of Representatives.
Copeland is a legal assistant in the Labor and Employment and Litigation practice groups at Bernstein Shur. She has previously worked as an LL Bean Quality Coach and Problem Resolution customer service representative.
At the local level, Rep. Copeland recently stepped down from serving her second term as the Saco City Councilor for Ward 4. In her role as Councilor, Copeland served as the council liaison to the Saco Conservation Commission, Shoreline Commission, Coastal Waters Commission, Parks and Recreation Advisory Board and Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee. She is the former chairwoman of the Saco Conservation Commission.
Copeland is also a small business owner, and runs Lynnie’s Landing as a Notary Public and wedding officiant. Rep. Copeland lives in Saco with her husband, Gregory, and their dog, Naomi.
Rep. Copeland would like to remind residents of House District 14 in Saco that constituent services provided by her office include congratulatory letters, Legislative Sentiments, flags flown over the Capitol, assistance navigating state departments and welcomes general comments and questions about legislative matters.
Copeland’s priorities are to generate a larger industrial base to create economic growth to offset property taxes, engage the youth and senior citizens in our community to create bonds, build relationships and contribute to a healthy community, and to embrace and protect our natural resources.
