Goal thermometer

House District 129 is a swing district that leans Democratic in most races, in most election years. Barack Obama won this district with 58% of the vote in 2008. John Kerry received 52% of the vote in 2004.

Unfortunately, due to the last-minute withdraw of the Democratic candidate in this race in 2008 and the Tea Party landslide in 2010, the residents of this district are represented by an unpopular Republican incumbent who doesn't share their values.

Andrew's opponent voted against marriage equality in the legislature in 2009, while Gorham citizens voted 56% for marriage equality in the subsequent referendum election. Andrew's opponent also voted to repeal Maine's same-day voter registration law, while Gorham citizens voted 59% to restore this law. Most concerning to local residents, Andrew's opponent recently voted to cut $350,000 in funding for local schools and rollback Maine's child labor laws.

I try to avoid taking politics personally, but from time to time I have the honor to support a candidate for public office in whom I truly believe, not simply because of where he or she stands on the issues, but because of who he or she is as a person. I am fortunate to have a loving and committed partner in Andrew. I have met few people in my life who are as thoughtful, sincere, honest, patient and compassionate as Andrew. He's able to manage a big personality like me and remain likable at all times even when we disagree. Simply put, he's got the right attitude and skills necessary to be an effective legislator.

Help us take back this seat, win back a Democratic majority and ensure we have a strong LGBT caucus in the Maine House!
