Lynn Cheney is a retired business owner and former corporate executive. In recent years she has been an active volunteer for multiple community organizations in the greater Blue Hill area.

Lynn grew up in a Navy family, living in and out of the country. After leaving Wellesley College, she remained in Massachusetts, marrying and raising two daughters. In 1973, she joined Comrex Corporation, a broadcast equipment manufacturer, moving to Blue Hill when she retired in 2006.
“Running a business, it was increasingly difficult and costly to find adequate health coverage for my employees. The small businesses as well as the hundreds of self-employed Mainers I’ve worked with as an ACA Navigator during the last four years confirm that the situation has only worsened. It is time for publicly funded, universal healthcare to allow us to control costs while covering everyone.”
