October 3, 2006
The League of Young Voters' 2006 Endorsed Candidates were
announced today in Portland.
"All the candidates share the common trait of keeping our communities
strong with local control. They all will be voting NO on 1" said
Justin Alfond, Maine State Director. In addition the candidates are
taking leads on issues young people care about like ecological sustainability,
affordable and efficient housing, cultivating a creative economy,
sustainable transportation options, living wages and universal health
care. "Our Endorsed State Candidates are proven leaders that
will represent young people well in Augusta." said Alec Maybarduk,
the League's Field Director.

League issues - universal health care, living wages, pro-choice
and progressive taxation! Many claim these issues but Jean actually
walks the walk. She gets our country's need for sustainable
energy, has solutions for immigration issues, and since she is an
organic farmer, she knows what it takes for agriculture to be local
and sustainable! Exactly what Maine needs in DC! Vote Jean!
