DAMARISCOTTA — A previously publicized event to meet with U.S. Senate candidate Zak Ringelstein on Saturday, Sept. 22, at the Lincoln County Democratic Committee’s Victory in 2018 Campaign Office in Damariscotta has been cancelled due to a scheduling conflict.

The organizers apologize for any inconvenience but want to remind voters that they have another opportunity to meet Ringelstein, along with other candidates, at the Brewing Democracy event on Thursday, Sept. 27, 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the upstairs Oysterhead Lounge of the Newcastle Publick House on Main St.

In a statement to Lincoln County voters, Ringelstein declares, “In this dark period of our country where we look more like an oligarchy than the democracy we love and treasure, we cannot afford to compromise our progressive values, and we cannot afford to vote from a place of fear. We must pursue an agenda of progress and hope. It is time to elect a new kind of Democratic leader to represent Maine in the United States Senate.”

“I am so happy to be able to vote for Zak Ringelstein; a true progressive democrat who takes no corporate money,” shares Zev Keisch of Damariscotta.

He added, “I am also extremely glad that we have Ranked Choice Voting so that I can vote Zak 1 and King 2 without worrying about giving the Republicans the seat via the back door. I can vote my heart and vote smart at the same time!”

The LCDC offers many “meet the candidates” events across the county along with other group discussions and meetings and an informative website. Learn more at,,, and

The next regular meeting of the LCDC will be held at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 26, at the Campaign Office.
