Rep. Andrea Boland is serving her third term in the House of Representatives. She serves as the House Democratic Lead on the Joint Standing Committee on State and Local Government and is a member of the Government Oversight Committee.
She has served on the board of the Home Health Visiting Nurses of Southern Maine, Sanford’s Personnel Board, the York County Budget Committee, the Board of Directors of the Literacy Volunteers of Greater Sanford, and the Sanford Maine Stage Pinetree Players, and brought the Odyssey of the Mind program to Sanford schools. 
A nationally recognized leader for safe wireless and safe cell phone use and application, Rep. Boland introduced the first legislation in the world requiring warning labels for cell phones, and was instrumental in the new law directing the Maine Public Utilities Commission to examine current cyber security and privacy requirements in law relating to smart meters -- the first legislation in Maine to address consumer concerns about smart meters.
The new smart meter law also requires the PUC to monitor federal efforts regarding cyber security and privacy issues regarding smart meters and to report to the Maine Joint Standing Committee on Energy, Utilities and Technology by January 15, 2012, and provides that the committee may submit a bill relating to smart meter cyber security and privacy during the next session of the 125th Legislature in January.
