Greens Lose State House Seat…

John Eder appears to have been narrowly defeated for re-election in Maine. As the party’s only state representative nationally, this is a huge blow.

Matthew Reading, another Green seeking a Maine state house seat has fallen short by 4 votes and this race will probably be heading to a recount.

Benjamin Meiklejohn, another promising state house candidate in Maine, fell far short of victory with less than 15% of the vote at this time.

On the plus side for Maine Greens… Rebecca Minnick was elected to the Portland School Committee and Pat LaMarche polled 10% for Governor.

    In addition to Minnick winning on the school board in Portland, the Greens lost a member (Stephen Spring) on the school board and won two seats on the city council.
