A Westbrook Democrat who drew the ire of Republican Gov. Paul LePage this summer is unopposed on the November ballot.

State Rep. Drew Gattine, 53, has represented House District 34 for two terms. He works as a healthcare program manager and serves as chairman of the Health and Human Services Committee.

In response to a Portland Press Herald survey, Gattine said he will vote in favor of background checks for privately sold firearms in Maine and an increase for the state’s minimum wage on the Nov. 8 ballot. He will oppose Question 1 — the legalization of marijuana for recreational use.

“A close call for me,” Gattine wrote on that ballot initiative. “I agree with many of the arguments in support but have too many open questions about the health and societal impacts.”

Gattine made national headlines in late August when an expletive-laden message left on his cell phone by LePage set off calls for the governor’s resignation.

His district covers the southern half of Westbrook.
