Their mission statement reads: The Maine College Democrats discuss current politics, host speakers, work on campaigns, and organize political events. We are dedicated to the ideal of a people united in helping one another. To those who are threatened, we pledge protection; to those who are victims, we ensure justice; to those who are hopeless, we offer a future. And to all Americans who seek a better tomorrow for themselves, their loved ones, and our country, we say: your cause is our own. See: News from College Democrats

The Maine Democrat

The Maine Democrat serves over 10,000 readers throughout the state of Maine. It brings them up-to-date on issues, highlighting the work people in Maine are accomplishing to make a difference. It's inclusive and progressive and has won acclaim for its in-depth interviews. The magazine style covers topics thoroughly.

The publication is bimonthly and covers stories that will have an impact in the lives of everyone who lives in Maine. From coverage at the State House in Augusta to reports from Machias to Kittery the newspaper covers events that will form what the future of Maine will be like.

Solon is located in Central Maine, which makes it a central place for a home base since the publication is about what's happening everywhere in the state of Maine. It is the first state-wide news-style magazine of its kind. In 1828 the first Maine Democrat was published in Saco and ceased publication in 1878. The reinvented Maine Democrat hopes to inspire like minded people to become actively involved in their communities and state politics. It is a volunteer run publication whose dedicated personnel believe that everyone can make a difference.

The publication is printed in Augusta, by union workers.
