Addendum submitted by Mike DeRosa on October 10, 2018 (slightly edited for clarity-RS):
Following adjournment of the GPCT special meeting/convention of 8/22/2018, at the Portland Senior Center, Barbara Barry, David Bedell, Mike DeRosa, and Bob Stuller remained to discuss the pros and cons of cross endorsement.  This discussion was started by David Bedell and continued for around 35 minutes.  The discussion centered about the recent endorsement of Baird Welch-Collins by the Waterford Chapter of GPCT. Baird is a registered Democrat and was endorsed by the Waterford chapter to run on the 38th legislative Green Party line for the Nov. 6, 2018 election while retaining his endorsement of the Democratic party to run on their line for the Nov. 6, 2018 election.  No vote or decision was made by the people attending this informal discussion about these matters.
