MAINE, USA — Speaker Ryan Fecteau of Biddeford said Representative John Martin of Eagle Lake is recovering after a neurosurgical procedure last week.

“Rep. Martin experienced a medical event while traveling back from Augusta to his home in Eagle Lake last week. He was treated at Penobscot Valley Hospital in Lincoln and transported to Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor.” 

“I’m doing well and appreciate the well wishes from friends, colleagues, and family,” said Rep. Martin.

Martin has been serving in the Maine Legislature for most of the past 50 years, including 19 years as Speaker of the House from 1974 to 1993.
