MilNeil running for State House (Parkside / Bayside)

Christian MilNeil is running to represent the Parkside and Bayside neighborhoods in the State House. He would be taking over the seat of Herb Adams who is retiring. As shown in his Rights of Way blog, Christian is a big proponent a more walkable / bikable city. He is looking to qualify for the state's Clean Elections Funding, so needs small donations now.
"making the Maine Dept. of Transportation more considerate and proactive about sustainable modes of transportation is a big goal of mine. But I'm also interested in doing more to cultivate small businesses as an economic development strategy, promoting more walkable downtown development in Maine's smaller villages and Main Street areas, and doing more to support immigrant populations in our neighborhood and across the state."
