InfoAngus S. King, Jr. was born in 1944, in Alexandria, Virginia. After graduating from Dartmouth College in New Hampshire and the University of Virginia Law School, he moved to Maine, where he started his legal career in Skowhegan, as an attorney for Pine Tree Legal Assistance.

From there, Senator King shifted his focus to causes that would better the lives of people in Maine – from working as chief counsel to the U.S. Senate Subcommittee on Alcoholism and Narcotics in the office of former Maine Senator William Hathaway to joining an alternative energy company and then founding a business committed to energy conservation initiatives.

In May of 1993, motivated by his concern about the Maine economy and the negative effects of excessive partisanship, he declared his intention to run for Governor of Maine as an independent. Eighteen months later, he won the election, beginning two terms that he dedicated to creating jobs, reigniting the economy, reforming the state’s mental health services, investing in the public education system, working toward common sense environmental regulations and more.

On a cold day in early January 2013, he raised his right hand, took an oath and became Senator of Maine – the most important job of his career and one he’d be honored to continue in the years to come.

Today, he lives in Brunswick with his wife, Mary Herman. They have one daughter, Molly, and four sons, Angus III, Duncan, James and Ben, along with six precious grandchildren.
