AUGUSTA – Officials with Yes on 1 Maine campaign held a press conference Tuesday to discuss recent campaign finance disclosures and what the group is calling misleading TV ads.
Yes on 1 Maine members said their goal is to reject Big Pharma and that their group is volunteer led and multi-partisan.
They say they’re rejecting government and pharmaceutical industry overreach and want to restore medical freedom.
“Question 1 would merely restore Maine’s vaccination laws to what they have been for decades. Requiring certain vaccines for school attendance but allowing a small percentage of the population to opt out of even one vaccines for conscientious reasons,” said Cara Sacks, Yes on 1 campaign manager.
No on 1 Campaign Manager Bobby Reynolds said Question 1 puts the health of Maine children at risk.
“These vaccines are safe. They’re effective. They prevent the infectious and often dangerous diseases. A no vote ensures that Maine’s children will be protected from these infectious diseases,” he said.
Voting will take place on March 3.
