  • Letter: Richard, Harris for Falmouth

    We in Falmouth are very fortunate. We have two candidates for the state Legislature whom we can easily support, even though we can only vote for one. Mark Richard is an honest, straight-shooting, level-headed young man who has shown his willingness to listen and his strong prudence with ou...

  • Letter: Foster in House District 109

    As we march toward the November election it is time to point out some differences between candidates for House District 109. I have watched the main two candidates and know the basic philosophy of both. Gary Foster is a conservative Yankee. He has shown fiscal restraint strength in the var...

  • Letter: Richard for Falmouth state rep

    Mark Richard will make a great representative for the citizens of Falmouth. Mark listens, he is collaborative, he gets things done, he operates from well developed principles and he has integrity. I have known Mark for almost 20 years and have watched him grow into an effective business leader an...

  • Letter: Re-elect Nelson in Falmouth

    I will be voting for Mary Nelson on Nov. 2 because of her record as an effective, responsible state representative from Falmouth. Her track record includes fiscal responsibility, supporting business and maintaining sports and the arts in the school curriculum. Because of her family’s...

  • Letter: Gruber in House District 108

    The citizens of Maine’s 108th House District have a marvelous opportunity this Nov. 2: they can elect Tom Gruber to represent them. Tom’s not a politician; he hasn’t sought public office since he moved to Cumberland in 1981. But he’s exactly what the district needs:...

  • Letter: Why he works for Richard

    Mark Richard first caught my attention when I heard him speak at a Town Council meeting. His words projected common sense. Hearing him at a later forum, again I heard common sense. Frankly, what the issue being debated at either of these meetings was, I didn’t recall. But, I did rememb...

  • Letter: Graham in House District 109

    Voters in House District 109 have a real choice next month. A choice between a candidate who understands the needs of Maine people and a candidate who is dramatically out of touch with the reality of life for thousands of families in Cumberland and North Yarmouth. Gary Foster is a town cou... 3

  • Letter: An independent lens for Dist. 11

    Clearly, the next Governor of Maine will set the direction for state government and that race is critically important. Equally important however are the legislative races taking place throughout our state. Recently I hosted a small reception in my Falmouth home for Dick Woodbury who is run...

  • Letter: Vote for Cumberland County Charter

    On November 2, 2010 voters in Cumberland County will have the opportunity to adopt the county’s first-ever home rule charter. Currently, the county operates without a charter.

  • Letter: Re-elect Rep. Mary Nelson

    I am writing to encourage Falmouth voters in District 112 to re-elect State Representative Mary Nelson on November 2. As a sitting Town Councilor, I appreciate Nelson's six years of experience on the Falmouth Town Council and as past President of the Maine Municipal Association. She brings valu...
