John L. Tuttle, Jr. is an American politician from Maine. Tuttle served as a Democratic State Senator from Maine's 3rd District, representing part of York County including his residence of Sanford. He was first elected to the Maine House of Representatives in 1978, serving until 1984 when he successfully sought to represent Sanford and the surrounding towns in the State Senate. He served in the State Senate until 1988, when he returned to the House. He served again the House from 2002-2010, when he was unable to run for re-election due to term limits. He successfully ran to replace Republican Jonathan Courtney, who ran for U.S. Congress. In the general election, he defeated fellow Sanford High School Class of 1970 alumnus Brad Littlefield.[1] He was defeated for re-election in 2014 by Waterboro Republican David Woodsome.

Tuttle graduated from Sanford High School in 1970. He earned a B.A. from the University of Maine Presque Isle and a Master's in Public Accounting (Finance) from the University of Maine in 1992.[1] He is a veteran of the Maine Army National Guard and a former medical emergency technician with the Sanford Fire Department.[2]
