As County Chair, I wanted to think about my response regarding the second impeachment of Donald Trump. The senate again failed again to convict Donald Trump. The Republican Party is so concerned of losing the voters that Trump built through propaganda and falsehoods they will do anything to hold onto power. Instead of standing up for the Constitution of the United States they chose to stand by a man who is corrupt and has always been corrupt. The Republican Party currently is at war within itself.

He has created a huge division in the United States and will have many repercussions in the future under the Biden Administration. He continues to push voter fraud and refuses to denounce the actions that took place.

The Somerset County Maine Democrats would like to wish everyone a safe and happy New Year. 2020, has been a very challenging year due to covid-19 and the many sacrifices that we have had to make. Many families have lost a love one and are struggling to survive as they cannot pay rent, bills and/or feed their families. Many individuals who once were independent are having to rely on friends and family to survive. A new year is coming and we all have hope. Please be kind to one another and follow covid-19 guidelines. The beginning of 2021 will be challenging; however I believe as Mainers and human beings that we can come together and overcome this challenge Please Stay Safe and Healthy

I hope everyone has been staying safe and healthy and had a safe holiday this year. I know that this year is very different from the previous year as we cannot be with family.

Good ShepardVirtual Food Drive This year, many of our friends and neighbors are facing hardships. That’s why we are teaming up with Democrats across the state to support the Good Shepherd Food Bank and provide 32,000 meals to Mainers in need. Every $1 raised provides 3 meals for Maine families in need, and the Maine Democratic Party is matching the first 3,000 meals! Visit MaineDems.org/FoodDrive to get started making a difference! Your tax deductible donation will help The Food Bank to distribute nourishing food, including fresh produce grown from Maine farmers, to our neighbors in need.
