Guest Post: Response to the threat against the Democratic Committee's Potluck, by Cindy Brakey
On Wednesday, April 27th, the New Gloucester Democratic Committee planned to have a potluck at property owned by one of their members. The goal was to gather with like-minded people and meet with some candidates for local office. However, at the last minute, they cancelled the event because a threat had been made against it.
This saddens and angers me. I don't know anything about the source or veracity of the threat. In any event, it is sad when anyone cannot gather in our town without fear.
I am glad to see that the Democratic Committee plans to reschedule their event in the coming days. We are planning our own similar potluck gathering on Sunday, May 22. Let us pray for the opportunity for both groups to assemble peacefully and exercise our First Amendment rights.
