Shenna Bellows is seeking the Democratic Party nomination for the U.S. Senate in 2014. Having led the American Civil Liberties Union of Maine for the last eight years, Shenna is a familiar face at the State House in Augusta, where she frequently testified on bills before legislative committees.

Shenna was born and reared in Hancock, in Downeast Maine, the daughter of a nurse and a carpenter. After graduating from college and serving in the Peace Corps, Shenna returned to Maine to pursue her passion to help others. As well as her work with the MCLU, Shenna has been an outspoken advocate on women's issues, immigration reform, and equal marriage.

For those of you that have no met Shenna, let the video below serve as an introduction:

Shenna faces a formidable opponent in Sen. Susan Collins, who is seeking her fourth term despite pledging to serve only two when she first sought the seat in 1996. Shenna has demonstrated her commitment to the people of Maine, and will continue to do so in the U.S. Senate.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
