SACO – Two national progressive organizations, Building Bridges for America and Roadmap for Progress, have endorsed former Senator Justin Chenette for county commissioner.
Building Bridges for America is an active nationwide all-volunteer grassroots group that mobilizes and empowers networks of relational organizers equipped to support campaigns and causes based in progressive values. Roadmap for Progress has a mission to promote fairness, boldness, and unity in American politics by helping to elect a diverse field of progressive candidates who embody these values.
“Our goal is to put the ‘Action’ in political action organization by putting in volunteer time with any candidate that we endorse,” says Melissa Hoin, a spokesperson for the organizations. “Justin embodies the values that we hold, and we're excited to help him campaign in every way possible.”
This endorsement adds to the growing coalition of support around Chenette’s campaign including Saco Representative Lynn Copeland, State Treasurer Henry Beck, former Senators Linda Valentino & Linda Sanborn, former OOB Representative Jerry Plante, MSAD #6 School Board Member Kelley Heath, and former County Commissioner Dan Cabral.
“We have the energy, enthusiasm, and momentum heading into this Primary,” says Chenette. “This national attention on our race shows the importance of making county government a priority to better serve our area.”
Chenette is running in the Democratic Primary set for June 14th and previously served 8 years in the legislature.
