(FARMINGTON, ME) – Trailblazers PAC, the national, nonpartisan organization supporting candidates for county or municipal level office who stand for honest government, announced its endorsement of Scott Nichols for Franklin County Sheriff in the November 3, 2020 general election. Trailblazers PAC has endorsed candidates across the country, but Mr. Nichols is the first candidate endorsed by Trailblazers PAC in the state of Maine.

To earn Trailblazers PAC’s endorsement, candidates for county or municipal level office of any party must disclose every penny in and out of their campaigns, make themselves accountable to their own voters by raising funds from households within their district instead of just from outside interests, and stand up for honest government through Election Day and beyond.

“With so much dark money being poured into campaigns across the country, it is important for voters to know and trust who they are voting for, who is funding them and why. Sheriffs are elected by the people they serve; it is important for the voters of Franklin County to know and trust that our campaign is funded by them,” said Scott Nichols, candidate for Franklin County Sheriff.

“Scott is setting a precedent in his community that voters should be the loudest voices in the room,” said Alli Woodard, Executive Director of Trailblazers PAC. “Even during these difficult times, he is going above and beyond what the law requires by taking measurable action for honest government, right now.”

Now in its fourth year, Trailblazers PAC has reached millions of voters across the country by mentoring municipal-level candidates in Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Massachusetts, Maine, Michigan, Nebraska, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia. The organization only endorses and donates to candidates running in contested elections, and since 2017, over 65% of these candidates have won their elections.
