Responding to a groundswell of support from acrossState Sen. Brannigan (D-Cumberland County) represents part of Westbrook.
Maine for marriage equality, more than fifty state senators and representatives
signed on to co-sponsor “An Act to End Discrimination in Civil Marriage and
Affirm Religious Freedom,” sponsored by Senator Dennis S. Damon (D-Hancock
County). Together, they represent Maine’s smallest towns and largest
cities from Calais to Bangor to Lewiston to Kittery. The list represents
first-term legislators and the Senator with the longest overall legislative
service, Senator Joseph Brannigan.
[Update: About Town has now listed all fifty co-sponsors, including State Sen. Phil Bartlett (D-Cumberland County) and State Rep. Ann Peoples (D-Westbrook). Thus, State Rep. Tim Driscoll (D-Westbrook) is the only member of the Westbrook delegation not listed as a co-sponsor for the bill.]
