Opinion

  • Letter: Foster has necessary qualities

    I would like to set the record straight and counter some of the personal attacks in Jeff Toorish's letter about Gary Foster. Growing up in Gray, Foster gained experience as an independent businessman and is a well-known carpenter and subcontractor in the area. He owns a multi-tenant buildi...

  • Letter: Send Davis back to Augusta

    When I close the curtain at the voting booth, I want my precious vote to support the one candidate who can truly represent me in Senate District 11. Jerry Davis has done this over the past years as a representative and is doing so now as the incumbent senator. As his neighbor for the past ...

  • Letter: Woodbury in Senate District 11

    We are writing in support of Dick Woodbury, who is running for state Senate in District 11. He is an independent who served in the Maine House from 2002 to 2008. We have known Dick for about 15 years and worked on several committees with him. One of us is a Democrat, the other a Republica...

  • Letter: Graham in House District 109

    I am writing to share my wholehearted endorsement of Anne Graham for House District 109. I first got to know Anne when she was the pediatric nurse for my children’s doctor. Her warmth and sensible approach made her standout as a practitioner and as a person. Since then, I have come...

  • Letter: Beem misdiagnoses free-market ills

    It seems, from his recent column, that Edgar Allen Beem is gleefully pronouncing the death of capitalism by it's own hands. I suggest an alternative explanation: The free market in this great nation did not fall on it's own sword. Rather, it has been slowly, but steadily, strangled at the...

  • Letter: Support South Portland High School

    The time is now to support the South Portland High School. I do not want the value of our house to decrease because we have not maintained our schools. I would rather pay a tax increase than see a 5 percent to 10 percent devaluation in our property values – a much larger amount ...

  • Letter: Graham listens in District 109

    With every new election, the bad behavior just seems to get worse and worse. The name calling and spreading of false information are a waste of time and energy and are a shameful way to model to our children. I’m grateful that a local candidate in District 109 has instead used her ti...

  • Letter: Thomas for Senate District 10

    As a resident of Brunswick, I am writing to express my strong support for Scott Thomas for state Senate in District 10 (Brunswick, Freeport, Harpswell and Pownal). Scott understands that the shell game in Augusta with our tax dollars must stop. Over the past years Augusta has paid lip serv...

  • Letter: North Berwick rep backs Graham

    My strong belief that Anne Graham will do an outstanding job as your representative motivates me to write this letter of support. As a member of the Health and Human Services Committee, I have seen Anne testify before the committee in her role as a member of the Advisory Council on Health System...

  • Letter: Mitchell will be good for business

    There has never been a government plan that couldn’t stand improving. They always start well and then something is added on, and another item is attached and before long, what started as a workable plan is muddled and working inefficiently Clearly, Maine’s support for businesses needs...
