The Lincoln County Democratic Committee (LCDC) will meet via Zoom or by telephone at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 20.
The agenda includes State Senator Chloe Maxmin (D-Nobleboro), joined by local environmental activists Andy Burt of Edgecomb and Michelle Henkin of New Harbor, who will discuss L.D. 489, the Pine Tree Amendment (https://mainelegislature.org/LawMakerWeb/summary.asp?ID=280078795).
According to pinetreeamendment.org, the proposed amendment would add “language to the Bill of Rights in the Maine Constitution that will protect the rights of all people in the state, including present and future generations, to a clean and healthy environment and to the preservation of the natural, cultural and healthful qualities of the environment.”
The meeting will also welcome a mystery guest and the leadership will provide an overview about what will replace the usual March caucuses, how to participate, and how to become a delegate to the State Convention.
