Clean Election Deadline Looms
Local candidates are working frantically to beat an April 18th deadline to collect enough $5 checks and signatures of registered voters to qualify for funds from the state’s Clean Election fund.

Green Party candidate Pat LaMarche’s gubernatorial campaign reported that they had about two-thirds of the required signatures (about 1600 of a required 2500), with only a week left.
“Failure is not an option,” said Martin Stephens, who moved to Maine from Tennessee to work on the campaign.

Among other local candidates who are racing against the deadline are State Rep John Eder, and legislative hopefuls Ben Meiklejohn and David Babin.
