No Culling Here

Cynthia Dill’s divisive rhetoric is not representative of the Democratic Party we know. Despite the example Ms. Dill sets, we are not a party of elitists who shun working class and rural voters. Quite the contrary, we strive to be the party of the people.

The Cumberland County Democratic Committee welcomes all who identify as Democrats. It doesn’t matter whether you prefer Carhartt or Armani; whether you wear flannel or silk; whether you were born and raised in Maine or are from away; whether you drive a Prius or a pickup; it doesn’t matter whether your bumper sticker says “Hillary” or “Bernie”.

We meet next on April 9th. (Check back for details). Like all Democrats, Ms. Dill is welcome to attend, but the elitism must be checked at the door.

Fundraising experiment

At the CDCC meeting February 25th, we discussed a fundraising
process that has been used successfully in Hancock County.
The folks there use the recurring donation feature on ActBlue.
It is possible for towns without websites to work in tandem
with the CCDC, using our website to solicit contributions.

We asked for towns to volunteer - and Freeport and Scarborough
agreed to try it out at caucus time. The DONATE link above now
goes to the shared page. Let us know what you think.

Contributions can shared equally or split among the
towns as desired.

Both single and recurring donations are supported.
