The Maine Heritage Policy Center Hires New Director of Communications

PORTLAND – The Maine Heritage Policy Center, Maine’s foremost free-market think tank, has proudly selected Krysta Lilly as the new Director of Communications.  Ms. Lilly has been working in Maine politics for years, both locally and at a national level.

“After several years without a Director of Communications, we are very pleased to have Ms. Lilly on board with us.  Ms. Lilly has dedicated her career to fighting for freedom in Maine and we know that she will continue work hard to promote our agenda of growth and prosperity.”  Ms. Lilly, who grew up in Arundel, Maine, has spent the last 2 years working for the National Rifle Association – Institute for Legislative Action in Fairfax, Virginia.

Ms. Lilly began her time with the NRA-ILA as a Legislative Aide and was later promoted to the position of Legislative Assistant.  As Legislative Assistant, Ms. Lilly worked tirelessly to advance Second Amendment rights in over 25 states across the country, including Maine where she was intimately involved in the passage of Constitutional Carry and the defeat of the bear hunting referendum in 2015.

“I am thrilled to have the opportunity to come back to Maine and serve in this capacity for such a relevant and important policy organization.  We have had some great success over the last few years in Maine, however, it is more important now than ever to be sure that as conservatives, we are setting the tone and advancing our agenda in Augusta so that more people have the opportunity to work, play and raise their families in Maine.”

Ms. Lilly is a graduate of the University of Maine at Farmington where she completed a B.A. in Political Science in 2011.  Prior to her work with NRA-ILA, Ms. Lilly worked as a Legislative Aide for the Maine Senate Republicans and as a Committee Clerk for the Environment and Natural Resources Committee.  Please join us in welcoming Krysta to our organization.
