Rep. MaryAnne Kinney, R-Knox, will serve a third term as the representative for District 99.

Voters in Brooks, Burnham, Freedom, Jackson, Knox, Monroe, Thorndike, Troy and Unity saw a race that mirrored a 2014 match-up.

In that District 99 race, Democrat April Turner of Freedom lost to Kinney by 666 votes.

Just before 8 a.m., results from all nine towns showed Kinney gaining victory by 166 votes this time around.

She is a member of the Maine Farm Bureau, MOFGA (Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association), NRA and the Maple Producers Association.

Kinney said she "votes what is best for my constituents."

Contacted the morning of Nov. 7, Kinney said, "I honestly didn't think it would be so close.

"I am very happy and tired trying to stay up until I had the results back from all the towns. I look forward to putting in another two more years helping out in Waldo County."
