Maine must act immediately to slow COVID-19 cases or hospitals will be overrun, and the point of no return is tomorrow, says Mainers for Accountable Leadership (MFAL), citing data put forward by the coalition COVID Act Now. In 48 hours MFAL collected more than 2,600 signatures from Mainers urging Governor Mills to issue a shelter-in-place order immediately. They presented the petition, which is still growing in signatures, to Governor Mills and Maine’s Congressional delegation this morning and are awaiting an answer.

Mainers for Accountable Leadership is a group of Mainers who value equality, justice, honesty, acceptance, and diversity. As Mainers, we believe that our U.S. Senators and our U.S. Congressional Representatives need to prioritize the voices of Mainers above politics and party allegiance. We will use the power of our collective voices to pressure our elected officials to support our values and to stand in opposition to those in Washington working to take away rights and protections for vulnerable communities, relegate our planet to irreparable harm, and consolidate more wealth for themselves and the ultrarich.
