  • Letter: Yarmouth candidate apologizes

    I am writing to apologize to Yarmouth Town Councilors Karl Steinbach and Jeff Darrell for conveying an error as part of an ad that I placed in The Forecaster pertaining to my candidacy for Town Council. In my ad I incorrectly stated that none of the current councilors had children in the Yarmouth s...

  • Letter: Don't waste your 2nd chance

    As I logged into Cumberland's Web site to view the results of the school budget vote on May 26 I was shocked and disappointed not only by the result of the vote, but the fact that only 583 of the 5,837 registered Cumberland voters chose to let their voices be heard. To the 10 percent who voted...

    We've seen the signs urging us to "Save Main Street" in Cumberland by voting no on June 9. Instead I urge you to vote yes. This issue is about preserving one of the few remaining small business locations on this stretch of road. If we don't keep the businesses we have, Main Street c...

    We'd like to remind you that on Tuesday, June 9, the polls are open at Falmouth High School. Not only is it the election of town councilors and School Board representatives, but it is also time to vote on the school budget validation referendum. Vote yes. The Falmouth School Departm...

  • Letter: Endorsing Wrobleski

    As two former town councilors and a former chairman of the Falmouth Zoning Board of Appeals, we are writing to support enthusiastically Joe Wrobleski's re-election to the Falmouth Town Council. Joe has been one of Falmouth's best town councilors, and deserves re-election. His leadership, good...

  • Letter: Re-elect Wrobleski

    Please join me in supporting Joe Wrobleski's re-election to the Falmouth Town Council. Through his work as the council's liaison to the Long Range Planning Advisory Committee (LPAC), I have come to know Joe as a knowledgeable advocate of reasonable natural resources protection policies. LPAC ...

  • Letter: Clear thinker, hard worker

    I appreciate the careful and intelligent thought Joe Wrobleski applies to all issues he encounters. He consistently reserves judgement until he considers all relative concerns and consequences. This is a developed thinking skill coming from many years practicing law as well as many years servin...
