8th Annual Legislative Breakfast Saturday

April 6, 2017

Local legislators have been invited to the Solidarity Center on Saturday April 8, 2017, 8-10 AM, for the 8th Annual Legislative Breakfast, co-sponsored by Food AND Medicine and Eastern Maine Labor Council. A number of current legislative topics will be presented by directly impacted citizens, and the legislators are asked to provide their stance and reasoning; some discussion will take place, but it is not a debate. Presentations will be followed by a Q/A session with the audience. This event is non-partisan and will NOT have press in attendance, to encourage more open discussion.

A locally-sourced breakfast will be served; a $5 suggested donation is requested at the door to cover the cost of the food.

As of Friday, we are now at Standing Room Only – people who aren’t on the list may or may not get a seat and may not get breakfast, unless there are no-shows. Here are the issues up for discussion tomorrow:

Issues that will be presented to legislators:

  • Child Care
  • Public Transportation
  • Minimum Wage
  • Stand up for Students
  • Governor’s Budget
  • Right to Work for Less

There will be a Wild West style Q&A session with the audience following presentations. A more detailed synopsis and photos will be posted next week.
