I am writing to enthusiastically support Keith Thompson for selectman in North Yarmouth. Keith is a longtime resident of our community and is a retired commercial pilot, photographer and writer. Keith understands the needs of our community and will bring to the board a positive energy that will move our town forward, unlike his opponent. Over the past year Keith has proven his willingness to participate in the unending meetings that being a selectman requires. In this special election, turnout is very important, so exercise your right to vote for Keith Thompson on Sept. 21.
