You are viewing the website of a local county committee for Democrats in Maine. County committees are the backbone of activism around Democratic issues—we encourage local citizens to get active; we provide education sessions and trainings; we recruit candidates for municipal, county, and state offices; we provide service to our local communities; and we provide a forum for discussion of issues of the day with other engaged citizens. And we have a good time doing it!
The Lincoln County Democrats embrace the ideals of our “favorite daughter,” Frances Perkins. the first woman appointed to a U.S. Cabinet and Secretary of Labor from 1933 to 1945 under Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Frances Perkins had an extraordinary commitment to civic responsibility, public service, and social justice.
We are proud of her bold, landmark programs to keep working families intact and secure in a historical time of great economic and social upheaval. To learn more about her, visit the Frances Perkins Center in Damariscotta or go to http://francesperkinscenter.org/
I am currently serving as the Chair of the Lincoln County Democrats. I have lived the past three decades in the little town of Somerville, where I have held various municipal positions. I was honored to serve as the Representative for House District 52 for six years, representing towns in Lincoln, Knox, and Kennebec Counties.
We are fortunate in Maine that government is so close and accessible to us. With such privilege comes responsibility—to actively participate in the democratic institutions that we hold dear in this country.
Come join us! We find ourselves in another period of economic and political turmoil in Maine. It’s “all hands on deck!” I look forward to talking with you.
