The forum features the Democratic candidates for Maine House District 90 and for Lincoln County commissioner in District 3.

District 90 is Bremen, Bristol, Damariscotta, Monhegan, Newcastle, part of Nobleboro, and part of South Bristol.
County Commissioner Mary Trescot, of Damariscotta, is running for reelection in District 3. Primary challenger Jane Langdon-Gray, of Newcastle, ended her campaign prior to the forum.
District 3 is Alna, Damariscotta, Dresden, Jefferson, Newcastle, Somerville, and Whitefield, as well as the unorganized territory of Hibbert’s Gore.
J.W. Oliver, editor of the LCN, is the moderator of the forum.
Voters will decide the races in the state primary and referendum election July 14.
The forums are taking place more than a month before the election because the state is encouraging voters to cast absentee ballots due to health concerns. They can do so as soon as mid-June.
