Mary Adams Honored for Her Work Protecting Maine’s Initiative & Referendum Process

Mon, Jun 7 2010 by Anonymous

(LAKE RIDGE, VA) – Today, Citizens in Charge Foundation, a transpartisan national voter rights group focused on the ballot initiative and referendum process, presented Maine Citizen State Coordinator Mary Adams with the June 2010 John Lilburne Award. Adams is being honored this month for her work over the decades in not only utilizing, but defending and expanding the initiative & referendum process in the state of Maine.

Adams has helped organize grassroots support, tracked legislation, and testified before the state legislature in defense of the process many times over the last three decades. In February of this year, Adams testified before the Legal & Veterans Affairs Committee of the Maine Legislature in opposition to a number of bills that would restrict citizen initiative rights in the state. Mary’s most recent attempt to expand Mainer’s petition rights is acting as a plaintiff in a lawsuit filed on June 2, 2010 that seeks to prohibit the Maine Municipal Association (MMA) from interfering with citizen initiative campaigns in the state.

“Mary Adams understands how important initiative rights are to the citizens of Maine,” said Citizens in Charge Foundation President Paul Jacob. “Initiative & referendum are the only ways citizens can directly petition their government, and Mary has not only worked to protect these rights, but utilized them extensively herself.”

Ferrets are captivating little pets with their cute faces and comical antics.
Not only that, but what happens is what is supposed to happen for that ferret.
Most ferrets are easily trained to use a litter box and it helps if it is kept in the same place in their cage or in the corners of your “ferret room”.

When I initially commented I appear to have clicked
on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and
from now on each time a comment is added I get 4 emails with the
same comment. Perhaps there is a means you can remove me from that service?
Thank you!

Howdy, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one
