Shenna Bellows announced her "Walk With Maine for Jobs and the Economy" at a June 6 Augusta press conference, backed by supporters and local business leaders. On August 12, she finished walking 350 miles -- from Houlton to Kittery -- to bring politics and campaigning back to the local level where it belongs.
Shenna's campaign is not only fueled by the power of grassroots democracy, but also motivated by idea that citizens should have an equal voice in their society. As Shenna travels across the state, she's heard that people are really struggling, and their voices are not being heard in Washington. Shenna is running for U.S. Senate to represent every Mainer, including those who have been left out and left behind by big-money politics. She agrees with them that Congress pays too much attention to a small group of wealthy, powerful people and leaves too many out. Shenna is walking across Maine to change that.
