3 WAYS TO SUPPORT THE CAMPAIGN TODAY!
LIFELONG REPUBLICAN, PROVEN LEADER
Crown of Maine Roots
Kevin was born in Presque Isle, Maine (Aroostook County) and lived in the small town of Ashland with his parents, Ray and Hazel, and one sibling. Growing up in rural Maine had its share of economic challenges as his family managed the family insurance business.
Throughout his career, Kevin managed the competing demands of parenthood, private sector work and military reserve commitments. As an original incorporator of Leaders Encouraging Aroostook Development (LEAD), he co-chaired the committee that initiated “The Crown of Maine” designation for Aroostook County. After spending 14 years working in Washington, D.C., he returned to Ashland where he oversees his business, Resilient Solutions LLC, a business and web technology consultancy.
Life Long Learner
Kevin Bushey graduated from Ashland High School and went on to earn a B.S. in Business Administration at the University of Maine at Orono. He then completed a Master’s degree in Business Administration at Embry Riddle Aeronautical University, and a Master’s in Strategic Studies at the Air War College. Years later, he received his Master’s degree in Public Administration for Homeland Security/Emergency Management at George Mason University. Kevin understands the importance of embracing a life-long learning attitude in order to stay competitive in today’s work environment.
A Proud Military Heritage
As is true for many small town families, the Busheys have a proud record of military service. His Father, Ray, served with the United States Army in Korea, and his uncles served in the Army and Air Force. Kevin continued this strong military heritage, serving in both the Army and Air Force, with multiple assignments across the world culminating with his last assignment as the senior reserve component advisor to the Acting Secretary of the Air Force.
Kevin is no stranger to political campaigns. A lifelong Republican, he volunteered as the co-chair of the Presque Isle Republican Committee in the 80s and as chair of the Scarborough Republican Committee in the 90s.
Engaged in the Community
Kevin is a member of the Ashland Area Economic Development Committee leading its efforts to improve Workforce Initiatives to include offering the Maine Department of Education WorkReady Credential Course through Ashland Adult Education, leading web marketing improvements, and facilitating business investment/investors to the Route 11 corridor from Oxbow to Portage Lake.
Currently a business consultant, he has taught business courses at Northern Maine Technical College, the University of Maine-Presque Isle, and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. He enjoys participating in local area music groups including the Aroostook River Voices and the Presque Isle Community Players.
Kevin at Home
Kevin and Mary are in their 40th year of marriage and are the proud parents of two children, Sarah and Pamela, both graduates of Virginia Universities. Kevin is an avid reader and enjoys history, hiking, health management, music and cooking. Kevin volunteers time to lend a helping hand in support to various U.S. ministries providing disaster relief such as the 2016 Louisiana floods and teaching online courses in civil government and developing Christian leaders for home congregations.
