Rebecca J. Millett (born October 5, 1962) is an American politician from Maine. Millett is a Democrat State Senator from Maine's 7th District, representing South Portland, Cape Elizabeth and part of Scarborough. From 2004-2010, Millett served on the Cape Elizabeth School Board. She won a primary for Senate 7 over South Portland Representative Bryan Kaenrath in June 2012[1] and was first elected to the Maine State Senate the following November after defeating Republican Mike Wallace.[2] The seat was held by Larry Bliss until his mid-term resignation in 2011. He was replaced by Cape Elizabeth resident and State Representative Cynthia Dill, who in turn decided not to seek a full term and instead to pursue the open seat in the United States Senate.

Millett grew up in Portland, Maine and attended area public schools. She earned a BA and BS from American University in Washington D.C. and an MBA in finance from the University of Chicago.[3]
