To the Editor:
Maine Youth for Climate Justice is a statewide coalition of youth climate activists fighting for a livable future for all Mainers, and we have formally endorsed Genevieve McDonald for Maine House, District 134 (Southwest Harbor, Tremont, Swans Island, Deer Isle, Vinalhaven). We believe that Genevieve McDonald is the best candidate to represent us because she upholds our values and will fight for our mission. Rep. MacDonald is a lobster woman by trade, and is very aware of the impacts the climate crisis will have on the industry, and how it will hit small-town economies the hardest. “Climate change is real. If you work on the water, you can see it. Data is real, science is real, temperature is real.” To keep Genevieve McDonald in the Maine State Legislature would be a win for the people, for Maine and for the efforts to mitigate climate change in our home.
