Lisa Savage to announce exploratory campaign for US Senate
PORTLAND, Me – Lisa Savage is a teacher, organizer, and grandmother from Solon, Maine who is exploring a run for US Senate to give Mainers a Senator who will fight for the people, not the powerful.
We the people are fed up with business as usual in Washington DC. The political establishment has brought us endless wars abroad, impoverished us at home, and sold our democracy to the highest bidder.
October 10, 2019 at 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m.
Congress Square Park
Congress Street and High Street
Portland, ME 04101
We have a historic opportunity in this race now that Maine has adopted Ranked Choice Voting. Our new and improved voting system, which Mainers won through an inspiring grassroots movement, gives everyone the freedom to vote their values, not their fears.
It’s time to say no to politics as usual, and join together to fight for a new system that puts people, planet and peace over profit.
As residents of the richest country in world history, we all deserve the fundamentals of a secure life, like good union jobs through a Green New Deal that will put millions to work tackling the climate crisis, a Medicare for All healthcare system that will work for everyone and stop driving sick people into bankruptcy, and quality education for all, including free public higher education without student debt.
We’ve never had a better opportunity – or a more urgent need – for a people-powered campaign to make history. Together, we can create a Maine and a nation that works for all of us!
Speakers will include Mikhu Paul, Sam Pfeifle, Ashley Bahlkow, Kim Rich, Markos Miller, Heather Nichols, Dud Hendrick, John Morris, Jill Stein, Kelly Merrill, and Lisa Savage.
