The Maine Green Independent Party “has re-elected Sam Chandler, who ran for the Maine House in Portland’s District 36 in 2014, as its secretary,” The Bangor Daily News reports. Chandler “co-chairs Patricia Jackson and Gil Harris, as well as treasurer Mako Bates on the party’s executive committee.”
In addition, the Greens named John Rensenbrink, “who was instrumental in founding the party, to a one-year term on the national Green Party committee and the Green Party International Committee. This continues involvement Rensenbrink has had with the party dating back three decades.”
