  • Letter: Re-elect Davis in District 11

    Jerry Davis notes a Robert Frost quotation in his brochure: “I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep.” If re-elected state senator, voters can depend on Jerry’s continuing to work painstakingly, keeping his promises and always going the extra mile. Jerry...

  • Letter: Woodbury for state Senate

    I’m writing in enthusiastic support of Dick Woodbury in state Senate District 11. Dick Woodbury is the right person at the right time. An economist by training, a respected expert in public finance issues, and a three-term state representative with legislative leadership positions fo...

  • Letter: Tepler in House District 60

    Denise Tepler stopped by my home recently to share her campaign literature and tell me why she is running for public office. I've talked with Denise on a number of occasions during the last eight years and here she was knocking on my door as a candidate running for state representative in House D...

  • Letter: Back Horch in Brunswick

    I am voting for the highest quality leader, not for the party. I am voting for Fred Horch, a hard-working man of integrity with short- and long-range vision. It is special to have such a knowledgeable and thoughtful person running in House District 66. I know he is running to be an advocate for...

    Kerri Prescott has been an outstanding legislator and representative for Topsham. She has been a strong, common-sense voice for fiscal responsibility and legislative accountability. We can’t afford to lose her presence in the state Legislature. I have contacted her on several occas...

    Maine voters go to the polls in a little more than a month to cast their ballots for a new governor. With the state and national economies struggling to recover from a brutal recession, the candidates present contrasting approaches to Maine’s economic challenges. The Baldacci adminis... 2

  • No Sugar Added: I admit it; I love boys

    Now, if you are privy to my dating history, you may be saying, “Duh.” But I’m not talking men here. I’m talking men in the making. Boys. I love listening to them talk. I love hearing them belly laughing down the hall and plotting and planning and scheming. This su... 1

  • Forecaster Forum: An elected mayor is 'just right' for Portland

    I’m confused. The November ballot asks Portland voters if they want to directly elect their own mayor. Some city councilors oppose the idea, because they think this proposal is way too bold. But other councilors think it doesn’t go far enough. Well, which is it? ...

  • Letter: Support the South Portland school bond

    I am writing to support the renovation of South Portland High School. Please, before you fill out your absentee ballot or go to the polls on Nov. 2, I encourage you to get the facts. This project is taking care of a lot of mistakes that were made in the past. Some think that the project co...
