Maine Greens Could Win a 2nd Legislative Seat

Published on November 1, 2006, by in General.

Ben Meiklejohn, Green nominee for the Maine State House in the 120th district, is considered somewhat likely to win his race. A few weeks ago, the Republican in the race dropped out and endorsed Meiklejohn. Meiklejohn is an elected office-holder already; he is a member of the Portland School Committee. The Republican candidate’s name appeared on the ballot for early voting, but voters were given a piece of paper telling them that he had dropped out and that votes for him would be considered blank. The election-day ballots will list only Meiklejohn and his Democratic opponent.

Maine Greens already hold one legislative seat, that of John Eder, who is running for re-election in the 118th district.

    a minor correction, Ben is running in District 120, another green campaign to look for is running in 119 that is Matt Reading running against incumb. democrat Herb Adams. . . that one will be real close I think
