The campaign to elect Democrat John Spear state representative for Maine House District 92 has announced it will hold a campaign kickoff reception Wednesday, Aug. 31, from 6 to 8 p.m. at Sandbaggers Café at the Rockland Golf Course.

District 92 includes Cushing, Criehaven Matinicus, St. George, South Thomaston and Thomaston. District 92 incumbent Chuck Kruger, Democrat of Thomaston, is prohibited from running again by Maine’s term-limit law.

The kickoff event is open to all residents of the district, as well as anyone else who wishes to attend. Spear noted that, in keeping with his interest to listen to and represent the thoughts and ideas of all residents of District 92, he felt it only appropriate to invite all voters to his campaign kickoff event, regardless of party affiliation. Spear also stated that he particularly hopes people he doesn’t know will stop by, so that he might get a chance to meet them.

Light refreshments will be served and door prizes will be drawn for gift certificates to four businesses in the district.
