Her uncle also sat on the Maine Supreme Judicial Court and Senate in the late nineties.

She started off as a mini politician, becoming the president of the student council and later chosen to participate in the U.S Senate Youth Program (USSYP) where she had the opportunity to have a two-hour conversation with the first female US Senator – Margaret Chase Smith. They both have the same middle name, that must have inspired her to pursue politics.

After she graduated with a Bachelors degree in Government, Collins worked as a legislative assistant to Senator William Cohen for 12 years between 1975 and 1987.

Shortly after leaving her position as the legislative assistance, she joined the cabinet of Governor John R. McKernan, Jr., as the commissioner of the Department of Professional and Financial Regulation. She was appointed as New England regional director for the Small Business Administration and later become the Deputy State Treasurer of Massachusetts under Joe Malone in 1993.

She contested for the Governor of Maine but did not receive a lot of support from her fellow Republicans as they criticized her for her “more liberal views on social issues”. She didn’t win the election and lost it to an independent candidate Angus King.

In 1996, she announced that she would be running for the seat in the U.S Senate and won by 49% to 44% against her final contender Joe Brennan.

She has been re-elected 3 times since then, 2002, 2008 and 2014 respectively.

Paul Grant of New Gloucester is a proud father of four children. His 13-year-old son has Type 1 diabetes. Earlier this year, Paul was shocked to discover that it was going to cost him more than $900 for a 90-day supply of insulin. That’s more than three times what it once cost him to buy this medicine that his son needs to remain healthy. Paul shared his story at a Senate Aging Committee hearing that I chaired examining the skyrocketing price of this lifesaving medication. Although insulin was discovered nearly 100 years ago, the average price has increased dramatically in recent years, making it unaffordable for far too many Americans. Thank you, Paul, for sharing your story. I am committed to continuing to work to increase the affordability and accessibility of prescription drugs like insulin.
