The purpose of this organization shall be to promote the ideals, principles and philosophy we share as Democrats. The nomination and election of candidates who advocate these ideals and principles are of utmost importance if our government is to continue to function effectively, democratically and as a government of and for all the people.

 

The Committee will serve as a coordinating agency for all Democratic party activities within the county. This should include assistance to the various town committees, developing and recruiting candidates, development of fundraising projects, financial and administrative assistance to candidates, registration and enrollment drives and voter turnout campaigns, outreach and publicity to develop relationships with people of all parties, and greater public understanding of how Democratic policies and values best serve the people’s needs. In addition, the Committee will serve as liaison to facilitate communication and collaboration with the Democratic National Committee and Democratic State Committee as well as with the local town Democratic committees.

The Maine Democratic Party is united in our efforts to elect progressive Democratic leaders from the school board to the Blaine House. We’ll get there by building our state party up from the grassroots and investing in local action.

 

As Maine Democrats, we believe that government at every level should work for the people and that everyone should have a fair shot at success. These core beliefs guide our Democratic values — affordable and accessible health care, strong schools, higher incomes, and an economy that works for all Maine people, not just the wealthy few.

Since 1848, the Democratic National Committee has been the home of the Democratic Party, the oldest continuing party in the United States. Today we are millions of supporters strong, fighting for progress and helping elect Democrats across the country to state government, Congress, and the White House.

 

There are several core beliefs that tie our party together: Democrats believe that we’re greater together than we are on our own—that this country succeeds when everyone gets a fair shot, everyone does their fair share, and everyone plays by the same rules. Our party is focused on building an economy that lifts up all Americans, not just those at the top.

That’s why Democrats are working to make progress on issues like job creation, equal pay, education, health care, and clean energy.

COMMITTEE UPDATES

  • Let's celebrate the season together with a potluck and food pantry collection event, generously hosted at the home of members Mike Herz and Kate Josephs....

  • So much must change. The president is an international embarrassment, a mean-spirited, pathological liar, and a domestic threat to our Constitution. GOP leaders put party above country, listen to money instead of constituents, and ignore science. Income inequality has made the wealthiest few even richer by stealing opportunity from everyone else. Climate change is now a crisis that demands decisive action....

  • Please consider renewing or joining us as a member of the Frances Perkins Club of the Lincoln County Democrats. Your financial support and volunteering makes Victory possible, and we can only do it with your help. ...

  • If you have a particular skill or interest to offer that can help with our work, please share and a member of the Executive Committee will reach out to you about joining a subcommittee or working group....
