Local House race heats up

So far, four candidates have announced their intent to run for the state House seat currently occupied by Representative Anne Rand, a Democrat (who plans on running for state senate). The district encompasses Munjoy Hill, the Old Port, and part of the West End.

The candidates are:

Munjoy Hill activist Ed Democracy, who is running as a Democrat.

Former Portland School Committee member (who lost his seat in last fall's election) and Green Independent Ben Meiklejohn.

Sandy Amborn, another Green Independent -- meaning that there will be a primary between Amborn and Meiklejohn. Not much of a web presence for her yet, aside from discussion on As Maine Goes.

Peter Doyle, a Republican who was vocal during the King Middle School birth control brouhaha.
