Letters to the Editor in Support of Jonathan Fulford
I encourage you to learn a bit more about Jonathan Fulford. He is a sharp, clear-thinking man who, in my opinion, has his priorities right; the priorities I hope are important to the Democratic Party in 2018.
Fulford is the way politics should be. He is not bought, and he will not sell us out.
Jonathan Fulford, Maine carpenter and builder running for Congress in Maine’s 2nd congressional district, called on his fellow candidates to reject corporate and lobbyist money in their campaigns. Joined by supporters in front of Republican Rep. Bruce Poliquin’s district office, Fulford denounced our broken campaign finance system that has allowed the wealthiest to have an outsized influence in lawmaking while working class Mainers pay the price.
Jonathan Fulford, a Waldo County farmer and construction business owner, said grassroots activism was the key to victory in the election. “The only way to beat Poliquin is not going to be by raising more money than him,” he said. “It will be by grassroots effort … by putting up a bold, positive vision of the future that everybody could rally behind, that’s how we get people fired up.”
