One of the most troubling and still-understated threats of our time is the ongoing threat to democracy and democratic institutions. The years ahead will continue to test the strength of American democracy, and it is of utmost importance that we elect leaders who are going to expend their power and influence toward the maintenance of democracy and freedom.

Democratic Rep. Morgan Rielly has demonstrated, in his time in Augusta, that he will meet this moment of crisis with effective action. Sitting on the Veterans and Legal Affairs Committee, he stopped numerous anti-voting bills that have recently been proliferating throughout the state. He cosponsored legislation expanding access to our democracy and making our elections secure. He supported ongoing absentee voting, a foreign contribution ban, online voter registration and a corporate contribution ban.

I urge my Westbrook neighbors to join me in supporting Morgan Rielly for a second term as our state representative.
