  • Mark Politte
    Dealer Principal

    Photo is Mark volunteering at Bar Harbor Food Pantry, helping unload and store a semi truck's worth of food for distribution in our communities.

    After a few years working as an engineer, Mark Politte joined the automotive world in 1994 to work for Ford Motor Company. A dynamic career with Ford led Mark, and his wife Samantha, to many assignments and cities throughout the United States. In 2005, he fulfilled a childhood dream by purchasing Stanley Subaru.

    Mark and his wife Samantha are very proud as the owners of Stanley Subaru, but are even more proud of their three children. In 2004 they decided to make Down East Maine their home fulfilling their desire to put down roots, be active contributing members of a small community, and raise their family in a supportive and value based environment.

    Since purchasing Stanley Subaru, the dealership has received numerous awards and accolades including twice receiving Subaru's most prestigious "President's Award". Most recently Stanley Subaru was recognized as a Stellar Care dealer, an award bestowed on an elite few for exceptional customer (guests) relationships.

    Mark is particularly pleased that the dealership participates in many community events and in the last seven years has actively supported over 20 local charities through hours, financial support, goods, and services-work he says is critical to Stanley Subaru's long term success in this small community.

  • We Remember Steve Bailey
    Parts and Scooter Specialist

    Stanley Subaru lost a family member, Steve Bailey, on December 23, 2012. Steve was a strong fighter in his battle with cancer, and remained brave and strong for his wife and son. Although we are relieved Steve is no longer in pain, we are deeply saddened and heartbroken for his family and friends. Thank you Steve for the years we shared with you and your smile will live on through your son, Corbin. May you rest in peace. To read more about Steve, click here. 

    We will honor Steve's memory here at Stanley Subaru. Until a proper memorial can be created, we will share our photos stories of our memories. We invite you to share your memories of Steve with us. 

    Steve Bailey moved to Maine from Rhode Island in 2006. Steve worked in the automotive parts business for 10 years and was with Stanley Subaru for 6 years.  Steve moved to Maine to be closer to his wife Michelle's family and recently welcomed their first child, Corbin.

    Steve always enjoyed classics cars, hunting, fishing, and outdoor sports - and knew more about scooters than just about anyone!

    To share your memories of Steve, send an email to [email protected] Please keep Michelle, Corbin, and all of Steve's family in your thoughts and prayers through this difficult time. Thank you.
