CCL Realizes No One Likes Them!

It was with a smirk, and a bit of schadenfreude, that we read this email from Mike Hein today:

"Dear YES for Marriage Volunteers and Supporters,

It is with a heavy heart and reluctance that I inform you the YES for Marriage referendum effort has been canceled.  The reasons are as simple as this: neither enough funds nor enough volunteer support to continue the effort.

I can only ask for your understanding and forgiveness while we finalize the process of terminating this effort.

All outstanding partially completed petitions can be turned into the League office at 70 Sewall Street, Augusta, ME 04330 without notarization or verification.  Blank petitions can be destroyed at your location without incurring the expense of returning them to our office.

Thank you for helping the YES for Marriage effort.


Mike Hein, Administrator
Christian Civic League of Maine"

With Portland's Dyke March scheduled for tomorrow, we don't think the timing could be more perfect.
