Opinion

  • Letter: Graham for the Legislature

    These days we are urged to “buy local” as much as we can. In general I agree with that and do whatever I can to support local businesses. However, in November I will not be selecting the local option when it comes to the race for state representative. In that race, Gray residen...

  • Letter: Richard is the GOP choice

    Vote for Republican Mark Richard for state representative in District 112. The Democrat policies for almost 40 years have been pushing Maine deeper in debt. That is not debatable. The famous “Maine Piglet Book” reports that the state treasurer’s office and state controller&rs...

  • 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...
