The Lisa Savage for US Senate campaign just keeps gaining momentum! Now that the primary is over and Lisa is the only candidate still standing for popular causes like Medicare for All and a Green New Deal, our grassroots movement is growing by leaps and bounds.
There’s so much going on, but we just wanted to update you on some of our latest milestones - and a big new opportunity to grow our campaign.
Thanks to supporters like you, we hit our second-quarter fundraising goal and have now raised over $90,000, a record for a Maine Green campaign! Here are some of the things made possible by your generous support:
Our team has grown bigger and better with the addition of a new Outreach Coordinator and Fundraising Director.
Jake Kulaw, our new Outreach Coordinator, is a health educator, longtime activist, and dedicated volunteer with Maine Wabanaki REACH from South Portland who is now helping to expand our outreach to Mainers across the state.
John Stewart, our new Fundraising Director, has worked with a variety of nonprofit, ballot initiative and candidate campaigns in fundraising, human resources, field operations, coalition building and more, including the successful campaign for ranked-choice voting in Maine. We’re excited to have Jake and John on board!
Lisa’s webinar series “The Way Forward” got off to a incredible start with deep discussions on “The Cost of War” and “Racial Justice at Home and Abroad” with brilliant guest panelists including Chris Hedges, Bruce Gagnon, Ajamu Baraka, Desiree Vargas, and Joseph Jackson.
An excellent primetime story on News Center Maine featuring Lisa and ranked-choice voting continued our track record of positive coverage in mainstream media.
Speaking of media exposure, we just began our first major ad campaign of the general election, placing video messages from Lisa in local news outlets about Medicare for All, the Green New Deal, and defunding wars and police.
Now we have a big opportunity to reach even more people with Lisa’s message - generous donors have offered to match all donations up to $5,000 so that we can expand our ad campaigns throughout Maine.
While our opponents target each other with endless negative attack ads, Lisa’s ads are spreading positive messages about real solutions to the problems we face.
The more people we can reach, the bigger our campaign will grow - putting Lisa in position to surge to an upset win once the voters see her in debates with the establishment candidates.
Thank you for all that you do to build this inspiring movement for the greater good. Stay safe and be well!
