DAMARISCOTTA — The Lincoln County Democratic Committee is set to host political journalist Steve Mistler in person for post-election analysis during their final monthly meeting of 2022.

At the writing of this announcement, the outcome of the Nov. 8 election had yet to be determined.

“We are thankful and very proud of the good hearted, capable and down-to-earth candidates who stepped forward to run for public office on the Democratic ticket this year,” said Chris Johnson, committee chair, according to a news release from Autumn Mahoney, committee member.

The hybrid meeting will take place Thursday, Nov. 17, at the American Legion, 527 Main St., Damariscotta, and via Zoom. Social time begins at 6:30 p.m. with the meeting starting promptly at 7 p.m. The committee welcomes all Lincoln County registered Democrats and unenrolled voters who voted for Democrats to attend.

Non-voting members must register to participate via Zoom, online or by phone. Anyone who registers will receive reminder emails and can decide to attend in person or online at their convenience. Register at lincolncountydemocrats.com/meet.

Mistler is Maine Public’s chief political correspondent and state house bureau chief who specializes in the coverage of politics and state government. He has been a journalist for nearly two decades. His work has been recognized by the Maine Press Association, the New England Newspaper and Press Association, the Society for Professional Journalists, the Public Media Journalists Association and National Edward R. Murrow Awards for investigative projects and accountability journalism. He was named the MPA’s Journalist of the Year in 2011 for his coverage of municipal government for The Forecaster in Falmouth, and later, for his coverage of state government for the Sun Journal in Lewiston.


Mistler became the state house bureau chief for the Portland Press Herald/Maine Sunday Telegram in 2012. After four years with Maine’s largest daily newspaper, he made the leap to radio journalism, joining Maine Public in 2016.

Lincoln County registered Democrats who are interested in becoming voting members of the committee should indicate their interest in the meeting registration form, whether they plan to attend the meeting or not, to have their name put forward to the membership to vote in on Thursday, Nov. 19. This is the last meeting where new members can be added before committee officers are elected in January.
