Senator Garrett Mason Continues Support As Official County Chair
The Marsy’s Law for Maine team is excited to announce our broad coalition of supporters continues to grow and strengthen. The more Maine people and policy makers learn about Marsy’s Law and what equal constitutional rights mean for victims of crime in Maine, the more they are eager to back the Maine effort full force.
Of particular note is that Senator Garrett Mason has come aboard as an official County Chair of Marsy’s Law for Maine in Androscoggin County. Sen. Mason, Maine’s Senate Majority Leader, was an early supporter of Marsy’s Law for Maine. Not only is he a co-sponsor of the bill, but he publicly voiced his support in an opinion piece that was published in the Kennebec Journal in April. In his article, he called constitutional rights “a needed remedy for Maine crime victims,” and wrote that Marsy’s Law for Maine “is a commonsense solution for crime victims and their families in Maine who deserve to have their rights elevated from statutory to constitutional so they are no longer inferior to and less enforceable than the rights of the accused and convicted, but equal.”
We are proud to have Sen. Mason’s strong and unwavering support, and we are grateful for his commitment to equal rights for Maine crime victims. Sen. Mason’s willingness to work in his community to raise awareness of and support for Marsy’s Law for Maine is greatly appreciated by our team, and by crime victims across Maine for whom passage of this long-overdue legislation is so meaningful.
