Letter: Put a SEAL in the state Senate

It occurs to me that since the world was made safer by the removal of Bin Laden by our Navy SEALS, there ought to be a parallel between that super job of defending us from terrorists and the election of a state senator in District 11, which covers the towns of Falmouth, Yarmouth, North Yarmouth, Cumberland, Chebeague Island and Long Island.

Since the SEALs are the best of the best and one of their own is a resident of Cumberland and a small business owner running for this seat we ought to pay him some heed. It also occurs to me that since 99 percent of us could not ever qualify as a SEAL that candidate Chris Tyll is something extra special.

This young family man will bring SEAL dedication and energy to the state Senate and he will serve us well. I will vote for Tyll.
