The Maine Conservation Voters Action Fund recently endorsed Shenna Bellows, a Democrat who is running in a contested primary for Senate District 14, according to a news release from the organization.

The district comprises Chelsea, Farmingdale, Gardiner, Hallowell, Manchester, Monmouth, Pittston, Randolph, Readfield, West Gardiner and Winthrop.

“Maine needs more leaders who will stand up for clean air, clean water and open spaces,” said Roger Berle, board president for the action fund. “If elected, we believe Shenna Bellows will lead efforts in Augusta to help protect our air and water, which is essential for having a strong economy.”

Bellows is running against Democrat Terry Berry, a Gardiner city councilman, in the June 14 primary. The winner of the primary will face the winner of the Senate District 14 Republican contest between Maureen Blanchard and Bryan Cutchen in November’s general election.
