The democratic former mayor of Bangor held an event at the Bangor Public Library.
Faircloth mentioned various goals of his campaign, like increasing the minimum wage and advocating for mental health and substance abuse programs. Faircloth said his is a "clean elections campaign."
Faircloth said "This campaign is not about me, it is about a promise I make to you today. If together, we work for a government in Lincoln's words, of the people, by the people, for the people, if together we seek a new and vibrant optimism in our state in livening and energizing, you will never find a more determined and passionate servant than me."
Faircloth is one of more than a dozen people running to replace Governor Paul LePage in 2018.
And we will continue to work to highlight all of them as they announce.
