On Sept. 18, the congregation of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Brunswick voted to support voting “yes” on Questions 2, 3, 4 and 5. Our advocacy for these questions reflects our dedicated work to end inequality and our concern for safety in Maine communities.

Question 2 helps to equalize educational opportunities and continues to Maine’s economic future by supporting a well-educated workforce.

Question 3 honors Maine’s tradition of responsible gun ownership and promotes the worth and dignity of every person by creating a safer culture for all Mainers.

Question 4 is a matter of justice, equity and compassion. Increasing the minimum wage will help to lift our most vulnerabke citizens out of poverty; it will improve local economies by increasing the capital people can spend.

Question 4 supports democratic values by giving the people stronger voices.
