  • Letter: Cooper's work merits re-election in Yarmouth

    Several residents of Gables Drive in Yarmouth lost their homes 15 months ago in a propane explosion. One man died. To add insult to injury, those of us without homes were required to pay a real estate tax based on the full value of our destroyed residences. Democratic state Rep. Janice Coo...

  • Letter: Breen a worthy successor to Woodbury

    It’s not often that a candidate of Democrat Cathy Breen’s integrity and qualifications comes along; the toxic environment in Augusta and Washington has kept far too many good people on the political sidelines. I know: I covered the Maine Legislature many years ago for MPBN, the Bangor...
