    Republicans Greg Payeur and Cathy Manchester both have lifetimes of hard work and significant achievement that make them excellent candidates for state representative and state senator.

  • Letter: No on Q2 to reject contract zoning in Cumberland

    Cumberland should vote no on Question 2. Voting no will support the zoning laws already approved by our community. Harris Road is zoned as a rural residential district which “primarily allows agriculture, low-density residential and other low-density uses with the intent of maintaining sign...

    This November, I hope you'll consider voting for Republican Paul Chace in House District 46. Paul will give a new voice to represent our community.
