As the election gets closer, there are many events to support our great candidates.  I am going to give them to you in calendar order.
October 7th:
Candidate Forum on Monday, October 7th.  The League of Women Voters, AAUW of Hancock County, the YWCA MDI, and the Mount Desert Islander/Ellsworth Americanwill sponsor the event for candidates for Maine House District 135.  Both of the candidates for this office, Joe Marshall and Brian Hubbel, were invited to participate and both have confirmed their participation.  Please come and support Joe even if you are not from this district.  The event will be held from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. at the YWCA of MDI.  The forum will be moderated by Jill Goldthwait.
October 9th:
Along with supporting our candidates, Republicans want to be informed about all that is on the ballot.  To that end, we have a spokesman for Governor Paul LePage and Bruce Poliquin (candidate for 2nd Congressional District) coming to our monthly meeting.  Don Loncto will be there to speak on the bear hunting referendum and Senator Ed Youngblood (former District 31) will explain the bond issues.  October 9th at 7 p.m. at our headquarters:  200 High Street, Ellsworth.

There are other League of Women Voters debates on the horizon.  I will send you the dates and places as soon as they are finalized and I know who is coming.

Janice Eldridge and her crew have done a super job keeping headquarters staffed.  It is entirely volunteer staffing.  Please contact Janice so you can help:Janice.eldridge@yahoo.com.  Headquarters is open every day.

Candidates, remember that headquarters is for you.  If you need help stapling signs, getting your information together or just a place to stop in and relax for a few minutes as you go door to door, please come on it!

Please consider going up to Bangor at least one time to make calls for the party.  It is actually easy as you ask people their opinions.  Many people are happy to be asked and most are polite.  No matter which way you come off 95 at the Broadway exit, make a right.  It is either right after the underpass (coming north) or the very next building (coming south).  They call all day long so even if you don't like driving at night, you can come and go in the daylight.

Please consider writing a letter to the editor for your favorite candidate.  The other party is really very good at this.  Please help.  You can do this from your own home on your own computer.

Remember, on November 13th we elect new officers for the HCRC.  Our State Committee people remain the same, but we must elect a Chair, Vice Chair, Treasurer and Secretary.  You are welcome to let folks know you are interested in any of these positions.
 Our next meeting will be at Headquarters (200 High Street) onThursday, October 9, 7 pm.
