  • 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. Sara Gideon, our friend, worked tirelessly to write and pass the bill to open up a new market. I am inspired by her willingness to tackle big issues that prevent Mainers fro...

  • 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: Why he works for Richard

    Mark Richard first caught my attention when I heard him speak at a Town Council meeting. His words projected common sense. Hearing him at a later forum, again I heard common sense. Frankly, what the issue being debated at either of these meetings was, I didn’t recall. But, I did rememb...

  • Letter: Graham in House District 109

    Voters in House District 109 have a real choice next month. A choice between a candidate who understands the needs of Maine people and a candidate who is dramatically out of touch with the reality of life for thousands of families in Cumberland and North Yarmouth. Gary Foster is a town cou... 3

  • Letter: An independent lens for Dist. 11

    Clearly, the next Governor of Maine will set the direction for state government and that race is critically important. Equally important however are the legislative races taking place throughout our state. Recently I hosted a small reception in my Falmouth home for Dick Woodbury who is run...

  • Letter: Clammer supports Gerzofsky for Dist. 10

    As member of the Freeport Shellfish Commission, a lifetime clammer and an advocate for clean coastal waters, I am writing to express my strong support for Stan Gerzofsky for the Maine State Senate representing District 10. I’ve seen first-hand why Stan has gained a reputation in Augu... 3

  • Letter: Town, school waste tax dollars

    The town's management resistance to answering Freedom of Access Act requests rises in direct relationship to the amount of money being wasted. Nathan Poore, Dan O'Shea, and Barbara Powers have Peter Felmly, Esq. of Drummond Woodsum, on what must be the equivalent of speed dial. Instead of just ...

  • Letter: Davis supports small businesses

    I’m pleased to endorse Jerry Davis to represent us again in the Maine State Senate. He deserves our vote to be sent back to Augusta. One of Jerry's biggest asset is his ability to talk to us, not at us. He is an avid listener and common sense leader that we need in these tough ec...

  • Letter: Students requiring restraint should be expelled

    Anyone mystified by the poor results of our public education system despite ever increasing public funding needs look no further that the recent series in the Forecaster on school policies governing "physical restraint" of students who apparently cannot comport with behavior not requiring “... 1

  • Letter: High school renovation will keep taxpayers in town

    I encourage all property tax payers in South Portland to support the bond issue for high school renovation. If you think voting no is a way to keep your taxes low, please consider: Parents with children in elementary grades are watching this vote closely. If this bond fails, those who can ...
