Hancock County Democratic Committee Candidate Forums

HCDC will host two important candidate forums in May. These address the many requests we have received from our members to see all the candidates together at one place and time.

  • Saturday, May 12, Congressional candidates Craig Olson, Jared Golden and Lucas St. Clair (Democrats running for CD 2), 2:00 pm in the theatre room of the Moore Center, State Street, Ellsworth

  • Thursday, May 17, Gubernatorial candidates Adam Cote, Betsy Sweet, Diane Russell, Janet Mills, Mark Dion and Mark Eves (Democrats running for Governor), 7:00 pm in the theatre room of the Moore Center, State Street, Ellsworth

We need your help to put the LePage legacy behind us and advance a progressive national agenda to counter Trump.

2018 will have critical elections for Governor, US Senator, US Representative, and State Senators and Representatives.  HCDC’s priorities for 2018 include electing a Democratic Governor, electing a Democrat for Maine’s Second Congressional District, winning back a Democratic majority in the Maine Senate and holding a Democratic majority in the Maine House.

We need financial support to pay for our office, phones, computers, supplies, campaign materials, and other expenses.  Please help us fund effective campaigns in 2018 by making a donation to HCDC.  The donation tab is easy to use.

We will also need a lot of help during 2018 in making thousands of phone calls, knocking on doors, doing office and computer work, writing letters to the editor, driving candidates, and helping with many other important tasks.
