Bangor – Military veteran Jared Golden, Democratic candidate for Maine’s 2nd Congressional District, announced the opening of a field office in Bangor today.

“The response to our grassroots campaign has been incredible, and I am thrilled to be expanding our campaign operations to Bangor,” said Assistant Majority Leader Jared Golden, Democratic candidate for Maine’s 2nd District. “It will take hundreds of volunteers committing thousands of hours to beat Bruce Poliquin, and based on the energy and enthusiasm I’ve seen around the 2nd District, people are ready to get to work.”

Golden’s campaign has received strong support from the local Bangor community. He has been endorsed by Bangor State Reps. John Schneck, Tori Kornfield, Barbara Cardone, and Aaron Frey, as well as Rep. Ryan Tipping of Orono, Rep. Michelle Dunphy of Old Town and Rep. Bob Duchesne of Hudson. Additionally, Golden has received endorsements from several local community leaders, including the Honorable Warren Silver, retired Maine Supreme Judicial Court Judge, Sarah Nichols, and Joe Ferris, former mayor of Brewer.

The Bangor field office is located on the 2nd floor of 193 Exchange Street in downtown Bangor. Phone bank operations will be held every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, beginning on Tuesday, April 24, at 5:30 p.m., and door-to-door canvasses will be held every Saturday at 10 a.m. Contact Margaret Reynolds at [email protected] with any questions.
