Augusta, Maine — Today, Maine’s first independent State Treasurer Terry Hayes filed signatures with the Secretary of State’s Office to qualify for the November election as the only independent, Clean Elections candidate for Governor in 2018. Hayes submitted signatures from all 16 counties two months ahead of the June 1st deadline.
“I’m proud to give Maine voters the choice to vote for an experienced, independent, and courageous woman to lead as Maine’s next Governor,” said Hayes. “I am grateful to the thousands of Mainers who’ve circulated and signed petitions, and who’ve made $5 contributions to help us qualify for Clean Elections.”
Treasurer Hayes is also seeking to qualify for Clean Elections by the deadline of 5pm on Monday, April 2nd. Hayes will be only the second independent candidate for Governor to qualify for Clean Elections since the program was approved by voters in 1996, and the first to qualify since voters changed the program in 2015.
Maine’s only independent, Clean Elections candidate for Governor, Treasurer Hayes offers Mainers the choice to vote for a leader who they can trust to choose Maine people over partisanship, every time, because she’s beholden only to them, and not to party leaders, special interests, or wealthy campaign contributors.
“Maine can’t afford four more years of divisive partisanship,” added Hayes. “I’m running for Governor to be part of the solution and give voters a different choice — the opportunity to unite Maine, fix the broken parts of our system, and lead our state in a bold new direction.”
