  • Letter: Freeport should control its own schools

    I would like to urge my fellow voters to vote yes to exit the flawed Regional School Unit 5 school governance structure. Since the RSU formed, tri-town voters must now advocate in front of two different governing bodies – the Town Council and the RSU 5 board – each with it...

  • Letter: It's time for Cutler to leave the race

    You don't have to be Einstein to know that insanity, as Einstein said, is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. It's crystal clear. Eliot Cutler and Gov. Paul LePage were neck and neck in 2010 and Elizabeth Mitchell – who should have stepped aside –...

  • Letter: S.P. city councilor opposes pot legalization

    Please vote not to legalizing recreational marijuana. This is not about medical marijuana. It is about adding a third drug (alcohol and tobacco are the other two) to those that are legal, but do immense amounts of harm to bodies, especially adolescent bodies. Let's do our part to keep a third leg...

  • Letter: Re-elect Grant to Brunswick School Board

    The two candidates for the Brunswick District 5 School Board seat are similar philosophically, but Jim Grant’s experience makes him more qualified. Grant has held leadership positions on the local board and is the first Brunswick member on the Maine School Board Association. He is no...
