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.
All of you who helped secure the win for Question 2 on Medicaid expansion deserve A BIG THANKS. The whole nation is taking notice of the leadership from Maine.
HCDC notice to candidates
Candidates for the 2018 election (Governor, CD2, Maine Senate and House) are welcome to attend a regular monthly meeting of the Hancock County Democratic Committee (third Thursday of each month at the Moore Community Center in Ellsworth at 7:00 pm) and address the membership. This opportunity is available through the meeting of March 15. Because of the large number of expected candidate visits and the need for HCDC to maintain ongoing substantive and participatory discussions, it is necessary to limit the amount of time available for such candidate presentations at each meeting. It is also necessary that HCDC is able to plan in advance for such visits. Therefore, any candidate wishing to appear is asked to make a request in advance by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org so that we may include the appearance in the agenda for the meeting. Time at each meeting is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Additionally, HCDC asks that candidates limit their remarks to 6 minutes. We find that candidates can introduce themselves and succinctly state their reasons for running in that time. We will also permit a couple of brief questions and answers for each candidate. After the June 2018 primary, Democratic nominees will be welcome back and will be given a longer time to address our members.
