Democrats to host West Gardiner Town Hall on Opportunity Agenda

Legislative Leaders to visit town Thursday to discuss budget to strengthen Maine

Sen. Shenna Bellows, D-Manchester, and Rep. Charlotte Warren, D-Hallowell, will host a Town Hall meeting in West Gardiner on Thursday, May 4 to discuss the Opportunity Agenda.

The Opportunity Agenda, the Democrat’s budget proposal for fiscal years 2018 and 2019, calls for the largest property tax cut in Maine history; invests in jobs and the economy; fully funds public schools; makes college degrees more affordable and attainable; supports families, seniors, children and veterans; and provides meaningful student debt relief.

And it does it all without unnecessary cuts to current services and without raising new taxes.

The Town Hall will take place from 5:30 to 7:30 PM at the Cobbosseecontee Snowmobile Club at 314 Spears Corner Road. Sen. Bellows will be joined by Senate Democratic Leader Troy Jackson, D-Allagash, Assistant Senate Democratic Leader Nate Libby, D-Lewiston, and Assistant House Democratic Leader Jared Golden, D-Lewiston. All members of the public and media are welcome.

A brief presentation will be followed by Q&A with the audience. Media availability to follow.
