  • Letter: Gideon deserves to be re-elected to House

    My husband and I set out to start a new business last fall, but it required legislation to make a go of it. Democratic Rep.

  • Letter: Re-elect Freeport's Gideon in House District 48

    Please join me in voting for Democrat Sara Gideon in her re-election to House District 48 (Freeport and Pownal). In her 2012 Maine House election, I drove Sara from door to door to meet and talk to what must have been thousands of residents. I was astounded at her commitment, her knowledge and he...

  • Letter: Corthell, Carlsen for Scarborough council

    Please join me in voting for Kerry Corthell and Iver Carlsen for Scarborough Town Council. In 2008 their opponents all voted to prohibit the Conservation Commission from commenting on plans for development in Scarborough, as the Commission had done for over 10 years. This was done to punis...

  • Letter: Richard deserves support

    Mark Richard has such a positive outlook on life that I know it’s hard for him to see or speak the negative. I can only imagine the challenge Mark feels as he answers the call of our state. It’s a negative fact that our state finds itself in a bit of a mess and I cannot imagine a mor...
