"Eder Gets Maine People's Alliance Endorsement" by Ed King in the West End News: September, 11 2006

West End State Representative John Eder has received the endorsement of the Maine People’s Alliance in his reelection bid for the House 118 seat which encompasses the West End and Libby Town.

Maine People’s Alliance (MPA) is dedicated to advancing economic, environmental, political, and social justice by involving and educating citizens. The organization is known for its grassroots organizing and education that reaches more than 100,000 Mainers each year with direct personal contact and leadership development.

Eder, who worked as a door to door canvasser for MPA several years before he was elected to the legislature, called leadership development ‘a priority’. He said he works closely with MPA in Augusta to put Universal Single Payer Health Care into place and to successfully implement Dirigo Health. Other priorities of the organization include eliminating mercury pollution, affordable housing, defending the referendum process, and increasing voter participation.

Eder called MPA “one of my most powerful partners in Augusta. When the MPA and its members come to the State House, the walls shake.”
