THE MAINE COLLEGE DEMOCRATS
The Maine College Democrats (MCDs),
represented above with Sen.Clinton, Rep. Gerzofsky, and Governor Baldacci, started the
first college Democratic newspaper in the United States The Blueprint. From now on
The Maine Democrat welcomes wholeheartedly all articles from the MCDs for publication.
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

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.
