Minutes of previous meeting have not as yet been sent out. Liesha will do so.

Liesha headed to Washington DC with the Maine People’s Alliance for a Consumer Lobby Day to speak with our reps. Will bring copy of Tom’s Task Force presentation.

Tom presented summary of last MAC Board of Directors meeting, including Marilyn’s resignation from the Board, the $50K donation from the King Foundation, legislative updates, Chris’s report to the Board, future efforts for field organization and canvassing, the search for an Executive Director, and the plans to have a table at the upcoming Democratic convention in Lewiston on 5/18-5/20.

The chapter agreed to have tables at the upcoming June 12th democratic primary election in at least two polling stations. Therese will request permission in Bridgton. Tom and Cindy will seek to obtain Banner, placard, handout materials, etc. for this date.

Therese will call names of those gathered who expressed interest in MAC in Bridgton and invite them to chapter meetings. Cindy will do same in Norway.

Liesha shared her participation in the “Call to Action” system and suggested calls to action such as Sign up for MAC, or Support Medicaid Expansion.

Meeting adjourned.

Next chapter meeting will be 5/22, same time and location.

Respectfully submitted,
