Sen. Diamond earns perfect attendance record in 2019 legislative session

Sen. Diamond: “My constituents expect me to show up and work hard on their behalf.”

AUGUSTA — Sen. Bill Diamond, D-Windham, earned a perfect attendance and voting record during the recently concluded legislative session. He is one of 20 Senate Democrats to receive a perfect attendance score.

“My constituents expect me to show up and work hard on their behalf,” said Sen. Diamond. “I’m proud of my perfect attendance record and commit to continuing to work hard for the people of Windham, Raymond, Casco, Standish, Baldwin and Frye Island.”

During the 1st Regular Session of the 129th Maine Legislature, Sen. Diamond cast a total of 350 votes – 100 percent of the votes recorded, excluding absences excused by the Senate President for illness or other extenuating circumstances. This year, lawmakers cast critical votes to protect children in state care, make our roads safer, provide $130 million in property tax relief and create good-paying jobs in rural Maine.

Sen. Diamond also had a perfect attendance record last year. The 129th Legislature adjourned on June 20. The Legislature is set to reconvene in January.
