  • Letter: Why MacLeod is running in Yarmouth

    My name is Jim MacLeod and I am running for Yarmouth Town Council. I am a Maine native, and I believe in the things that make Yarmouth such a special place to live.  For my family, it’s the sense of community, the village, and the schools. I think we would all agree that Yarmouth ...

  • Letter: Falmouth vote is about community

    Falmouth has a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to create a place for all to learn, gather, and grow – to build memories and community. As a mother of three, I cannot imagine not seizing it. We’ve spent countless hours at the library, reading, enjoying story hour, and doing puzzles. We&...

  • Letter: Re-elect Larson in Falmouth

    Having been a member of the Falmouth School Board for six years and working alongside Analiese Larson for two years, I do know what her beliefs are and what she values for the Falmouth schools. She is tenacious when it comes to the financial picture for the schools. Her first priority with any o...

  • Letter: Vote no on 1 in Cumberland

    I would like to urge the residents of Cumberland to vote no on Question 1. After reviewing all of the material offered by the group trying to make changes to our existing regulations, I see absolutely no valid reason to change. Rather than improve our way of life the proposed changes would negati...

  • Letter: Brunswick residents deserve better from ZBA

    Emily Guerin effectively captures neighbors' concerns over the train maintenance facility planned for Brunswick ("Frustrated neighbors take train complaints to rail authority board," May 25, 2011). No one buys a home near railroad tracks without expecting train traffic, and most are happy to see...

  • Letter: Harpswell better off without SAD 75

    When we explained the reasons for Harpswell to withdraw from SAD 75 we used precisely correct and "official" statistics, showing how much more Harpswell pays in proportion to the other three towns.  These figures were provided to your reporter and were taken directly from materials supplied ...

  • Letter: Jones seeks votes in Yarmouth

    My name is Philip Jones and I'm running for the School Committee in Yarmouth. My wife, children and I moved here from New York 3 1/2 years ago, and a major factor in our choosing Yarmouth was the quality of the schools. We were impressed by the academic excellence that was a priority, but equal...

  • Letter: Vote to end Falmouth's liberal legacy

    The upcoming Falmouth town elections are critical. For most of the 15 years I have lived here, the direction of the town committees, led by “progressive liberals” effectively forced town councils to raise taxes for wants, not needs. But recent council elections of fiscal conservativ...

  • Letter: Falmouth library overcrowding a fact of life

    My family adores the Falmouth Memorial Library. That is why I support its relocation. During the past several years, it has become clear that the children/young adult area is far insufficient for the number of children that it serves. My family has even chosen to leave the library a few ...

  • Letter: No room for vandalism in Falmouth campaign

    Recently I noticed that a political sign on Lunt Road in Falmouth has been vandalized. The sign opposes Question 1, and has been spray-painted to the point of illegibility on one side. I am a volunteer with the Yes on 1 campaign. I speak for the entire campaign when I denounce this vandali...
