  • Letter: Denno has right background for Legislature

    As a Cumberland resident, I am grateful we have a candidate like Democrat Dale Denno prepared to represent our community in House District 45.

  • Letter: Denno for Cumberland state representative

    Democrat Dale Denno, a long time Cumberland resident, is getting my vote for state representative in House District 45. Dale has worked in the public and private sector, and contributed countless hours to public service. In his various roles, he has had the opportunity to successfully work with b...

  • Letter: Thomas in Senate District 10

    It’s well known that Maine is in the highest tier for tax burden, and the lowest tier for business friendliness. Clearly, we face an unsustainable future. This is the consequence of the stifling policies and over-regulation of a Democrat majority that has ruled the state for 35 year...

  • Letter: Horch for Brunswick state rep

    I am writing in support of Fred Horch for state representative. Fred is a friend, and I sincerely respect him and his wonderful family. But that is not why I will be voting for him. Rather, I will be voting for Fred because he truly is the best choice to represent Brunswick. When I first...

  • Letter: Graham for the Legislature

    These days we are urged to “buy local” as much as we can. In general I agree with that and do whatever I can to support local businesses. However, in November I will not be selecting the local option when it comes to the race for state representative. In that race, Gray residen...

  • Letter: Richard is the GOP choice

    Vote for Republican Mark Richard for state representative in District 112. The Democrat policies for almost 40 years have been pushing Maine deeper in debt. That is not debatable. The famous “Maine Piglet Book” reports that the state treasurer’s office and state controller&rs...

  • Letter: Richard, Harris for Falmouth

    We in Falmouth are very fortunate. We have two candidates for the state Legislature whom we can easily support, even though we can only vote for one. Mark Richard is an honest, straight-shooting, level-headed young man who has shown his willingness to listen and his strong prudence with ou...

  • Letter: Foster in House District 109

    As we march toward the November election it is time to point out some differences between candidates for House District 109. I have watched the main two candidates and know the basic philosophy of both. Gary Foster is a conservative Yankee. He has shown fiscal restraint strength in the var...
