“Do we believe that individuals should pull the ladder up from behind them, or do we believe we’re all in this together?” Diane Russell wrote these words in 2012, and in the four years since, she’s proven herself to be one of the most progressive and effective lawmakers in Maine.

A true public servant, she believes that we the people are our state’s greatest asset, and works for all Mainers. A strong voice for the powerless, she was named “Most Valuable State Representative” in the country by The Nation magazine.

A champion for a democratic process that works for all, she has won national praise for her recent efforts to reform our undemocratic “superdelegate” system.

Diane has consistently demonstrated the kind of leadership that’s sorely needed in our divided government, and we need her working for us in the Maine Senate. Please vote for Democrat Diane Russell on June 14.
