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.

Susan, you can run but you cannot hide. Your political career might have ended. Your only chance is to vote NO on the final bill. I urge Mainers to call her office plus write a short note to her contact site voicing your displeasure with her vote on Tax Reform and demand she vote NO on the final bill. Her contact website is at: www.collins.senate.gov/contact. Her Portland Number to call is at: (207) 780-3575. Her DC Office Number is: (202)224-2523. The Bangor Office Number is: (207) 945-0417. CALL CALL CALL. Your call could save you $1000+ in taxes and assure social programs are left intact.

Those who will be writing and/or calling...mention preserving Net Neutrality too.

U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders
Shocking news: what President Trump is saying about the Republican tax bill is not truthful. Trump and the Republican leadership are on television every day telling the American people how this tax bill is going to help the middle class. And yet the wealthy, who need tax breaks the least, will benefit the most, and many millions of struggling working-class and middle-class families will end up paying more in taxes.
