The Lions MAINE


Over fall break, which at Columbia falls on election day weekend, the Columbia University College Democrats (Columbia is the Lions) take a trip somewhere to campaign. This year I decided to go. We headed up to the frigid and deserted state of Maine. I had been to the southern tip on a trip to New Hampshire freshman year of high school, but this was my first time in Portland. The city itself was quaint, but the snow was horrific. We campaigned for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mike Michaud. Unfortunately he lost, one of many making the 2014 election tragic. Though the trip was fun, it did make me realize how much I love New York. New York is home, and I was relieved to return.
