Rep. Fredette Awarded Christian Civic League's 'Minuteman' Award

Recognized for advocacy on behalf of life, religious liberty, traditional values

AUGUSTA - The Christian Civic League of Maine has awarded Rep. Ken Fredette (R-Newport) their 2013 Minuteman Award for his work in the Maine Legislature this year. Rep. Fredette serves as the House Republican Leader and represents Corinna, Exeter, Newport, Plymouth, and part of Corinth.

According to the Christian Civic League, the Minuteman Award is presented to legislators or other state leaders who effectively and courageously advocate for life, religious liberty, and traditional values.

League executive director Carroll Conley presented the award to the Republican leader. "Rep. Fredette's leadership influenced the strong support we received from Republicans on our informed consent, parental consent, and wrongful death bills this year," said Conley. "I thank him for his hard work and dedication on issues that are important to the Christian Civic League and its members."

Though the bills supported by the League faced uphill battles in the Democrat-controlled legislature, they were able to gain near-unanimous support among Republicans and bipartisan support in a few instances thanks to the efforts of Conley and lawmakers like Rep. Fredette.

"It's an honor to receive this award and I will continue my work in support of the values and the members represented by Mr. Conley and the Christian Civic League," said Rep. Fredette. "As Mainers, we must fight to preserve our moral foundation and advance the principles of faith, family, and justice whenever we have the opportunity."
