From Peter Orvetti at Green Party Watch:
The Maine Green Independent Party announced that the Portland Greens have “received a sizable matching donation of up to $6,000 to help with their Get Out The Vote (GOTV) operations this election season!” Any donations up to $6,000 will be matched.
The Portland Greens are running two city council candidates and three school board candidates, in addition to mayoral candidate Tom MacMillan. In 2012, MacMillan finished second in a three-way race for state representative with 27% of the vote, easily outpacing the Republican nominee’s 14% but losing to the incumbent Democrat. MacMillan ran again last year.
