ORONO Margaret Chase Smith Distinguished Maine Policy Fellow Rep. Ellie Espling will visit the University of Maine on Monday, Jan. 25.

Margaret Chase Smith Distinguished Maine Policy Fellows are prominent individuals with a past or current career as a policymaker in the state. The Margaret Chase Smith Policy Center brings its fellows to campus for a day to teach an undergraduate class, engage faculty about research and public policy, and meet with UMaine administration and graduate students.

Distinguished Maine Policy Fellow Rep. Sara Gideon, assistant majority leader of the Maine House of Representatives, visited the university in October.

Espling is the assistant Republican leader of the Maine House of Representatives where she represents House District 65, which includes part of Poland in Androscoggin County and all of New Gloucester in Cumberland County. She is serving her third term in the House and is a past member of the legislature's Inland Fisheries and Wildlife Committee.

Espling will be honored with a reception from 4 to 5:30 p.m. at the University Club in Fogler Library. All are welcome to attend the event; no RSVP is required.

Espling's visit is co-sponsored by the Margaret Chase Smith Policy Center and the Office of the Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost.
