CONVERSATIONS WITH THE CANDIDATES

In 2018, Mainers will be electing a new governor.

Maine is fortunate that it has a number of talented Democrats who have stepped forward to run for governor. The Lake Region Dems, supported by the Cumberland County Dems, are sponsoring a series of meetings – conversations – with those candidates.

We want to give you a chance to meet each candidate in a way that gives you a true sense of who the candidate is and who will best represent your concerns and priorities. We invite you to attend each individual session.

Each conversation will be held at The Little Meeting House, 719 Roosevelt Trail, No. Windham. Refreshments will be served at all meetings.

Get ready to have a conversation with the candidates – one of whom, with your help, will be the next governor of Maine.

Hi Friends, If you have petitions for Ranked Choice Voting, please tag me in a comment or message me. We need help collecting during the Women's March, but then we must get those petitions back into the office immediately afterward.

We are right on the margin of making it and we need one final push and every signature in to make it. Even if you have collected one signature, we will take it! Thank you!

I am available to notarize the sheets - the person who collected the signatures needs to get together with me.

I turned mine in a while ago.

All of Maine's federal delegation agrees DACA recipients need a path to citizenship. Right now DACA is being used as a bargaining chip by the President and GOP leadership to secure funding for the border wall. A bipartisan group of senators made an agreement and Trump rejected it. The budget must be passed by January 19th or the U.S. Government will shut down. We need a clean Dream Act NOW.
DACA recipients were brought to this country by their parents. They are Americans. They are Mainers. They are us, but are reduced to an alien number identification. We need a clean Dream Act NOW!
We need to do what is right for our neighbors and stand up against racist, xenophobic policies introduced by the Trump administration and the GOP.
We want our country to be one that works for #AllofUs.

What can we do to make sure that we in our CommUnities are ready if a real disaster occurred, and to ensure that we have good leaders to lead in such occasions. This has great info on what people should know in case of any emergency. We should also work towards a more peaceful world so that we don't need weapons, especially nuclear, anymore, a world where we actually have Peace on Earth!
