    South Portland voters have important choices to make on Nov. 2, and one of them is choosing among the candidates for two open City Council seats.

  • Letter: Send Foster to Augusta

    A mailer promoting the candidacy of Anne Graham in House District 109 raised a question in my mind as to its accuracy.

  • Letter: Horch will be an energy leader

    I write in response to the Rev. Frank C. Strasburger’s letter on the legislative race in District 66. Strasburger is badly mistaken in saying that Fred Horch seems not to be very much interested in alternative forms of energy. I have conversed with Fred often in the past several year...

  • Letter: An independent for Nelson

    As an independent voter, I will focus on choosing the best candidates across all parties this November. Maine is at a crossroads, and now, more than ever, we need strong, thoughtful, and competent leaders in Augusta. That is why I am voting for Mary Nelson for state representative for District ...

    I have had the privilege of knowing Tom Gruber for over 20 years. We served together in the Army Reserves and were both activated during Operation Desert Storm. Tom was an exemplary officer during those years. He was best known for his organizational skills as well as his ability to complete task...
