07 May Chloe Maxmin
CANDIDATE FOR STATE REPRESENTATIVE HD88
representing Chelsea, Jefferson, Nobleboro (part) and Whitefield
I am running for the House Seat in Maine’s District 88 because I love my home and community. This is where I grew up and want to spend the rest of my life.
I have been a community organizer since I was twelve years old. For thirteen years–over half of my life–I have been working with communities in Maine and around the country to call on our politicians to take action, to fight for us, to respect us. We build movements that demonstrate the people’s collective calls for climate action, access to healthcare, debt-free education… Our politicians continuously fail to fight for justice and stand up for their constituents.
I am so tired of begging people in power to do the right thing. Everything that we love and care about depends on effective politics and–more importantly–effective politicians to put forth policies that benefit the many, not the few.
Our political system has been failing me, my generation, and my neighbors for my entire life. It’s time to elect bold politicians who will inject new energy and vision into politics.
Our campaign in District 88 has been filled with so much inspiration and excitement. In the first 15 days of our campaign, we raised $1000 in Seed Money, all our Qualifying Contributions for Clean Elections funding, and all our signatures to get on the ballot. We were the first candidate in the District to qualify for Clean Elections funding So far, we’ve been endorsed by Run For Something and Maine Local Berniecrats. We’ve had 18 Letters to the Editor in local papers for our campaign (and counting). We had one house party in Whitefield and many more in the coming month. A group of local artists helped us make beautiful signs for the campaign, and our yard signs are going up all across District 88.We have two canvass days coming up: May 12 and May 26. And this is just the beginning. Please reach out if you want to get involved!
I am a lifelong Democrat, Clean Elections candidate, and Nobleboro native running for the Maine House of Representatives in District 88 (Chelsea, Whitefield, Jefferson, and part of Nobleboro).
I grew up on my family’s farm in Nobleboro. For as long as I can remember, I have loved our community more than anything. I have devoted my life to fight for Maine. When I was twelve, I became involved with local issues to build political power that protects Maine’s past and invests in our future. I started the Climate Action Club at Lincoln Academy and worked with students, teachers, community members, and businesses. I went to Harvard College and co-founded Divest Harvard, a campaign calling on Harvard University to divest from fossil fuels that ultimately drew 70,000 supporters. The day after I graduated in 2015, I moved back to Maine to organize. I worked on Bernie Sanders’ campaign and Ben Chin’s Mayoral campaign in Lewiston. I have organized with Maine People’s Alliance, 350 Maine, and Campaign Earth. Now I am running for office to fight for my home and community in Augusta.
In District 88, we need to support aging family members while laying a foundation for young people to build their futures. This campaign is about affordability and accessibility to in-home care. It’s about fostering new creative businesses and investing in our schools. It’s about building communities that are resilient in the face of climate change, supporting reliable renewable energy, and ensuring that our local economies will flourish.
