1. Gearing up for the Democratic Convention Friday and Saturday (June 2 & 3) at the Augusta Civic Center

Set up help needed...
We can start putting up Jean's signs inside the Augusta Civic Center at noon tomorrow (Thursday), June 1. We need many volunteers to help with this project. If you can be at the Augusta Civic Center at 11:30 a.m. Thursday, please respond immediately so we'll have a count as to how many are coming.

We'll need another set up crew on Friday morning at 7:30 a.m. so we'll be ready to put up signs outside the Civic Center at 8 a.m.
Same deal, let us know if you can make it.

Our Booth at the Augusta Civic Center is in the main lobby, just to the right of the stairs.
Several people have volunteered to staff the booth, but we can always use more. Consider it a good place to hang out. It's really close to the convention hall so you can keep track of what's going on.

Our Hospitality Suite at the Holiday Inn
We've booked a hospitality suite in the Holiday Inn, just across the drive from the Augusta Civic Center, for both Friday and Saturday nights. It will be located in the Hotel's York Room, which is on the first floor between the hotel lobby and the Ground Round restaurant. We're going to stock it with all-Maine food (except for the coffee, which will be free-trade and organic). The suite is just off the Holiday Inn lobby, and will be open Friday night from 8:30 to 11:30 p.m. and on Saturday from 6 to 9 p.m.

Jean's Speech is Saturday morning at 11 a.m.
We'll need LOTS of folks to escort her into the hall, cheer on her speech, and escort her back out after the speech. Check in at the booth when you arrive either Friday night or Saturday morning so we can get people lined up. This is where we rock the vote, so don't miss it.
2. Jean Endorsed by national ImpeachPAC
ImpeachPAC, a federal PAC funding pro-impeachment candidates for Congress, has announced its first endorsement of a candidate for the Senate, Jean Hay Bright of Maine, who is seeking the Democratic nomination to challenge Republican incumbent Olympia Snowe. In addition to the national endorsement, ImpeachPAC pledged to send $2,100 to her campaign.

4. Hayden vote latest example of Senate ignoring Bush Administration wrong doing
The Senate's confirmation May 26, 2006, of Gen. Michael Hayden to be the new CIA director is the latest troubling example of a weak and ineffective Senate willing to look the other way in the face of strong evidence of Constitutional wrong-doing by the Bush Administration...
