Portland Dems Fall Kickoff: Thursday, Sep 23

Portland Democratic City Committee

Fall is here, and it’s time to get back into action with the Portland Dems.

Please join with other Portland Democrats for our Fall Kickoff meeting next Thursday to talk about ideas and plans for this fall and beyond – as we start to see 2022 on the horizon.

Here’s a few of the items to present and discuss on Thursday:

  • Candidate Forum for Portland City Council Elections
  • Upcoming PDCC Fall Fundraiser
  • Getting ready for crucial elections in 2022, including the Maine Governor’s race
  • Ongoing voter outreach
  • Issues and activities that YOU care about

I hope to see you at 6:30pm on Thursday, September 23! This member’s meeting will be held virtually on Zoom.

PDCC Meeting tomorrow: Rescue Plan $$ for Cumberland County


July PDCC Meeting: Rescue Plan Funds Discussion, feat. Commissioner Jim Cloutier

Thursday July 15, 6:30-8:00pm, over Zoom

(Register Here) (Agenda Here)


Did you know Cumberland County is set to receive $57,300,874 this year in funding from the American Rescue Plan? This money is coming because Democrats took action to lead us through the Covid-19 pandemic and into an economic recovery.
But our job isn’t done. We as Democrats, along with all residents of Cumberland County, get to use our voices in determining how these funds will be spent. So we are dedicating our July PDCC meeting to discussing the Rescue Plan Funds. We’ll first hear from Portland’s County Commissioner Jim Cloutier about opportunities for input and advocacy around the fund allocation, and then we’ll have an open member discussion about ideas for spending these funds.

Bring your voices, your hopes, and your ideas. President Biden and the Democrats delivered the American Rescue Plan, but it’s up to all of us to put it into action!

We raised $500 for the Abyssinian Restoration Project!
Thanks to everyone who donated to PDCC between 6/17 – 6/24 for our fundraiser for the Abyssinian Restoration Project. We raised $500 to contribute towards the reopening of this important part of Portland’s Black community life and history. Learn more and get involved at abyme.org.
