WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, congratulates Cassie Julia on her primary victory for Maine’s 65th state House District. EMILYs List President Jessica Mackler released the following statement: 

“EMILYs List is thrilled to congratulate Cassie Julia on her primary win in Maine’s 65th state House District and defeating anti-abortion Rep. Bruce White. Mainers deserve a candidate that will fight for our fundamental freedoms and take a stand against anti-abortion extremists. EMILYs List is confident that Julia will fight for equality, education, health care access, and affordable housing while in office, and we are proud to stand with her in the general election.”

Cassie Julia is a native of Fairfield, Maine, and has made Waterville her home for the past 20 years. Julia is an advocate for Waterville Public Schools where she founded Friends of Waterville Public Schools to ensure that school budgets were protected and highlight the importance of funding public schools. Over the years, she has worked tirelessly to ensure food security for qualifying K-12 students by raising funds to pre-pay lunch fees for reduced lunch, before the state implemented free-for-all lunch. Julia will provide a progressive voice for the people of House District 65.
