Skeek Frazee retired this month after 12 years of working for Congresswoman Chellie Pingree as a caseworker, specializing in helping constituents with immigration, veterans’ benefits, and military sexual trauma cases
WASHINGTON, DC—After 12 years, a beloved and dedicated member of Congresswoman Chellie Pingree’s (D-Maine) staff retired this month. Skeek Frazee, who lives in South Portland, has worked through several administrations and national and global crises, and has won awards for her work in helping Maine immigrants. Before joining Pingree’s staff, Skeek worked for Planned Parenthood helping women get better access to health care. In June, Pingree honored Skeek and her years of public service by speaking on the House floor, officially recognizing her in the Congressional Record.
“I believe the great majority of us who work in this institution do so because we want to make life better for our neighbors. Skeek exemplifies that spirit,” Pingree said in her remarks to Congress.
Pingree’s full remarks honoring Skeek’s dedication to the people of Maine was submitted to the Congressional Record on June 23, 2022, which can be read online here. A video of Pingree’s remarks is available for download here.
