  • 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: High school renovation will keep taxpayers in town

    I encourage all property tax payers in South Portland to support the bond issue for high school renovation. If you think voting no is a way to keep your taxes low, please consider: Parents with children in elementary grades are watching this vote closely. If this bond fails, those who can ...

  • Letter: Support high school renovation for future generations

    I am writing in support of the upcoming vote on the South Portland High School Renovation Project. With absentee ballots available and election day just around the corner, I feel that it is critical for people to become informed on this important ballot question. While discussions about t...

  • Letter: Vote for Cumberland County Charter

    On November 2, 2010 voters in Cumberland County will have the opportunity to adopt the county’s first-ever home rule charter. Currently, the county operates without a charter.

  • Letter: Re-elect Rep. Mary Nelson

    I am writing to encourage Falmouth voters in District 112 to re-elect State Representative Mary Nelson on November 2. As a sitting Town Councilor, I appreciate Nelson's six years of experience on the Falmouth Town Council and as past President of the Maine Municipal Association. She brings valu...
