  • Letter: McLean grateful for re-election to Maine House

    I was honored and humbled to have been re-elected by the people of Gorham and Scarborough to represent Maine House District 27. I am deeply grateful for the faith and trust that you have placed in me. Since my first campaign for the Maine House in 2012, I have knocked on nearly 7,000 doors...

  • Letter: House District 47 should elect Snow

    Rick Snow is an excellent and most competent candidate for state representative. I’ve known Rick for a number of years, and I’ve found him to be an honest, straightforward individual who’s a hard worker. Rick has proven himself as a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy in A...

  • Letter: Freeport athletics will flourish without RSU 5

    I’d like to dispel the myth that a stand-alone Freeport school system will be bad for our athletic program. As a parent of a former three-season Falcon, I can assure you that Freeport High School had athletic successes prior to consolidation. The maroon banners hanging in the gymnasium are ...

  • Letter: Breen's record is right for the Senate

    For many years, I have known Democrat Cathy Breen as a community builder and civic leader. She has been consistently involved with regional civic associations and local government.

  • Letter: Family friendly vote is for RSU withdrawal

    As a parent of children in Freeport schools, the decline of the last five years has been noticeable. Morse Street School lost six ed techs, two interventionists, and other resources. All four Freeport schools saw similar cuts. The cost of joining Regional School Unit 5 meant our schools ha...
