Join the Portland Democratic City Committee for our next monthly meeting on Thursday, May 7 at 6:30 PM, happening virtually via Zoom.

Maine, and other interesting speakers.
Please RSVP for the meeting here, and the full agenda for the meeting with minutes from the April meeting that we will vote to approve is here.
See you Thursday!
Due to the global health crisis, Democratic candidates are having a difficult time collecting the required number of Clean Elections donations without canvassing.
Please consider making a $5 donation today to the Clean Elections Democrats running to represent you: https://www.maine.gov/cleanelections.
It only takes a couple minutes to give and is a great way to simultaneously support campaign finance reform, Democratic candidates, and equal representation!
