Henry Bear to run for Maine State Senate in 2020

Henry Bear of the Maine Green Independent Party has been added as a write-in candidate for election to the Maine State Senate to represent District 2.

“The Republican and Democratic Party are not the only choices in this election. My interest in all my work, since I became an adult, is to do what I was taught, and that is to care about and help those in the family, in the community, and regionally, in order to live a meaningful life,” Bear said in a statement to the Houlton Pioneer Times.

The environment is a major concern at the forefront of the Bear Campaign.

Bear, a member of the Houlton Band of Maliseets, will run against Incumbent Michael Carpenter (D) and Harold Stewart (R).

Election day is November 3, 2020.
