Chloe Maxmin is a 25-year-old Nobleboro native who grew up on her family’s farm. When she was 12, she became a climate organizer, “working to build movements that can push our politicians to stand up for my generation and all those impacted by the climate crisis in Maine and beyond.”
In college, she co-founded Divest Harvard, a campaign calling on Harvard University to divest from fossil fuels that ultimately drew 70,000 supporters.
The day after she graduated in 2015, she moved back home “to build my life here and fight for Maine.”
She is running because, “We need politicians who will fight for young people, for our aging neighbors, for farmers, fishermen, and all those who love Maine and believe in a better future.”
Her campaign is “about building communities that are resilient and regenerative in the face of climate change, supporting reliable renewable energy, and ensuring that our local economies will flourish.”
Why so few candidates in Maine? There were some great candidates we endorsed in the Maine primaries who unfortunately lost their races. And, we’re sure we missed some. If we did, please send us an email at info[at]citizensregenerationlobby.org.
