Letter: Corthell, Carlsen for Scarborough council

I am writing in support of Kerry Corthell and Iver Carlsen for election to the Scarborough Town Council. I have had the opportunity to meet these two exceptional candidates and find them to be great listeners and thinkers who I believe will bring new perspectives to town government. Kerry and Iver reach out to people and ask them what they feel are issues the council should focus on. They made an effort to come to Pine Point to hear from over 30 neighbors about the problems we've faced over the years by a town government which has refused to listen to the people. I am convinced they will do an excellent job because of their qualities and character.

I also believe it is important to remind people of the Pine Point issues. That is why former Councilor Richard Sullivan, who is running again, was so soundly defeated by the voters, in my opinion. So I ask the voters of Scarborough to "Remember Pine Point," which was a symbol of all that was wrong with local government and replace those who were part of the problem with Corthell and Carlsen, who I believe will be part of the solution.
